Lucky Bastard Gets Free Upgrade to First on Emirates; Records Hilarious Review

Vlogger Casey Neistat was taking an Emirates flight from to New York City to from Dubai.  He still isn’t sure why, but he somehow scored a free upgrade to first class out of business.

He happened to have all his video equipment with him.

What resulted was the funniest first class review I’ve ever seen in my life.

While most bloggers have the flight attendant take a photo of them sipping Dom, Mr. Neistat spent a good portion of his review watching the door on his private seat open and close.


He was thrilled to see caviar on the menu until he actually tried it.  And while he was appreciative of the PJs in his amenity bag, he preferred his own.

He attempted to make his own bed at one point and was stopped by the flight attendant.

And yes, he documented his time in the shower… with proper blurring.

I couldn’t stop laughing at this video, so I hope it brings a smile to your day.
