Cobb has been working for Southwest Airlines for almost 8-years. In the video that was uploaded to YouTube on April, 12, Cobb tells passengers,

“Can I pretend to have your attention for just a few moments? My ex-husband, my new boyfriend and their divorce attorney are going to show you the safety features of this 737-800.”

Cobb had the Salt Lake City-bound passengers in stitches and got a round of applause at the end of the three-minute video, which has been viewed an outstating nearly 6 million times! She told TODAY that she made the video about three months ago during a flight to Salt Lake City.
