'Aguaman': Jason Momoa shocks passengers as he poses as a flight attendant and passes out water

Jason Momoa in 2017.

TikTok user Kylee Yoshikawa shared a cute video on August 2 of actor Jason Momoa pushing a bar cart and passing out bottled water on a Hawaiian Airlines flight. He even wore a flower over his left ear like a female Hawaiian airlines flight attendant.

Momoa, a native Hawaiian from Honolulu, is best known for playing Khal Drogo in the HBO hit “Game of Thrones” as well as Duncan Idaho in Dennis Villeneuve's “Dune” remake.

The video was given to Yoshikawa by her “aunty” and since she shared it on TikTok, it has been viewed nearly 5 million times.

My aunty sent me this vid, i just thought i'd share 😍✈️ #PostitAffirmations #hawaiitiktok #jasonmomoa #flightattendantlife

It must have been a huge shock for the passengers to see the massive Momoa, who is 6 foot, 4 inches, shuffling his way down the aisle, pushing a bar cart and passing out water to unsuspecting passengers. Airplane cabins weren’t built with hulks like Momoa in mind.

The video received a host of hilarious comments. The most popular poked fun at his iconic role of Aquaman in the DC Extended Universe. “Aguaman,” Liziabeth wrote blending the Spanish word for water with the name of his character.

Others commented on the pretty flower in his hair. “Flower on the left... he is spoken for ladies," Crystal Brown wrote.

Another joked that his new job was a sign of the times. "Inflation got celebrities taking part-time jobs," Aquarius said.

"Jason Mimosa," sal_stiproject quipped.

Noellani pointed out that it wasn’t all for fun, Momoa’s sudden career change was a publicity stunt as well. "He’s handing out Mananalu water, founded by the Jason Mamoa himself,” she wrote.

Momoa is the founder of Mananalu, a bottled water brand that uses aluminum instead of plastic bottles. The brand chose aluminum because it can be recycled an infinite number of times and has the highest recycling rate of all beverage packaging options.

The company also removes one plastic bottle from the world’s oceans for each bottle of Mananalu purchased.

Others noted that Momoa seems to be doing fine after a road incident he had last month. TMZ reported that Momoa struck a motorcycle while rounding a curve in the hills near Calabasas, California. It’s believed that the motorcyclist drove into Momoa’s lane in the bend and hit the front end of his Oldsmobile muscle car.

The motorcyclist was taken to the hospital with minor injuries and Momoa left the accident unscathed. Or did he? "He hit his head in the bike accident, now he thinks he’s a flight attendant,'' anonymous TikTok user joked in the video's comments.

Whoever came up with the idea of having Momoa pass out his water on a Hawaiian Airlines flight within a flower behind his ear deserves a raise. They obviously knew that it would get posted to social media and immediately go viral. Heck, at Upworthy, we even realized it was a PR move but it was still such a fun moment that we figured it was worth sharing.

Mananalu water is available wherever fine bottled water is served.

Adorable Dexter and his new chew toy. Thanks Chewy Claus.

True

Every holiday season, millions of kids send letters asking for everything from a new bike to a pony. Some even make altruistic requests such as peace on Earth or helping struggling families around the holidays.

But wouldn’t the holiday season be even more magical if our pets had their wishes granted, too? That’s why Chewy Claus is stepping up to spread holiday cheer to America’s pets.

Does your dog dream of a month’s supply of treats or chew toys? Would your cat love a new tree complete with a stylish condo? How about giving your betta fish some fresh decor that’ll really tie its tank together?

Or do your pets need something more than mere creature comforts such as life-saving surgery?

Philadelphia is taking the city back to the past.

Remember when calling your parents, a tow truck or a friend when you were out and about meant digging in your pocket for a quarter to make a pay phone call? Well, a Philadelphia-based collective, PhilTel, is jumping into the past with a modern twist, by installing free-to-use pay phones throughout the city.

Of course, the pay phones that many of us grew up were removed from public places years ago. There no longer seemed to be a need for them when most people had a phone in their pocket or in their hand. But it's easy to forget that not everyone has or wants that luxury. For some people, staying that connected all the time can be too much and for others, it's simply financially impossible to own a cell phone.

Sandler's daughters held nothing back.

Clearly the funny gene runs in the Sandler family. Comedy aficionado Adam Sandler just proved it after reading an insanely funny acceptance speech, which was allegedly written by his two teenage daughters— Sunny, 14, and Sadie, 16. It was such a savage roast, one is compelled to not doubt the claim.

The event was the prestigious Gotham Awards in New York, where Sandler was set to accept a Lifetime Achievement Award. Michelle Williams and the late Sidney Poitier were also honored, just to give you an idea as to how highbrow this event was.

But did that stop Sandler’s daughter from going all out? It did not. They were hilariously ruthless.

Think all cats are the same? These pictures prove they each have their own personality

Catographer purrfectly captures cats' purrsonalities.

People often mistakingly attribute a singular personality to cats—usually the words "aloof" or "snobby" are used to describe them. At best, they might be given the "evil genius" label. But in actuality, no two cats are alike. Each has their own distinct ways of being, whether that’s silly, sophisticated, affectionate, downright diabolical or somewhere in between.

This photographer has the pictures to prove it.

Nils Jacobi, better known online as furryfritz, the catographer, has photographed literally thousands upon thousands of cats—from Maine coons who look like they should be in a perfume ad to tabbies in full-on derp mode.
