The Mile High Club: Lion King Cast Sings "Circle of Life" on Virgin Airways Australia

As on-plane impromptu performances go--and we've had a few--this one is pretty cool.

Passengers on board a Virgin Airways flight from Brisbane, Australia to Sydney might have been thrown when they heard the occupants of the front few rows burst into African-style chanting (with a bit of Elton John thrown in), but as "The Circle Of Life," the famous opening number of The Lion King, emerged, all became clear.

And clearer still when an announcement informed everyone that they were travelling with the cast of said musical.

As we said, pretty cool...
