It’s the hilarious moment that Southwest Airlines held a toilet paper race to entertain passengers who got delayed in Chicago.
Passengers were stuck on a plane waiting to take off from Chicago Midway International Airport on Sunday when flight attendants came up with an idea to pass the time.
Footage shows passengers in aisle seats passing a roll of toilet paper each which they had to hold above their heads and unroll a bit before passing to the passenger behind them.

Whichever side rolled out their toilet paper completely without breaking it first was declared the winner.
Passengers, who were on Flight 2783 waiting to get to Buffalo Niagara International Airport, were captivated by the race.
Flight attendants and other passengers can be heard saying, “Hurry up! Oh, it’s a tight race!
And other passengers are loudly clapping and shouting to show their support and enthusiasm.
One passenger, Marc Cohen, posted a clip of the game on Twitter with the caption: “Thank you SouthWest Airlines for making this the most interesting flight delay ever with a… toilet paper race.”
And Southwest Airlines replied: ‘Thanks for sharing. We’ll be sure to pass along!”
The side that completely unrolled their toilet paper first was declared the winner.
The delayed flight means the passengers arrived in Buffalo one hour and four minutes late.
And it came the day after the airline suffered 1,908 delays or cancellations, which the company blamed on a computer system failure.
As of 9 p.m., FlightAware.com showed there were 470 cancellations during the day on Saturday with 1,438 delays, or around 40% of all flights flown.
“We are experiencing flight disruptions on our network today due to the brief disruption to our service earlier this morning as we worked to resolve an intermittent technology issue, as well as ongoing weather challenges affecting multiple areas of our system” , the airline wrote on Twitter.

And it’s not the first time a Southwest flight attendant has gone outside the box to entertain passengers.
In 2019, footage surfaced of a Southwest Airlines flight attendant rapping about pre-takeoff safety rules.
The attendant, named Adele, was checked in by passenger Robert Stratton on a flight from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City, Utah.
“I’ve never had a flight like this before, it was great to start with,” Stratton said. “Everyone on board really enjoyed it.”
