Flight Attendant Gives 'Despacito' The Sky High Remix It Deserves

Javier Otero reworked the hit track in a bid to sell scratch-off tickets.

A flight attendant from Spain is on cloud nine after his reworked version of “Despacito” went viral.

Javier Otero, a steward for low-cost Irish airline Ryanair, sang his interpretation of the Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber smash hit over the intercom during a flight from Gran Canaria to Seville last week.

Video of his passionate performance, in which he changed the song’s lyrics and title to “Dos Euritos” (two little Euros) to promote the sale of scratch-off tickets, was shared to Facebook on Saturday:

The video also features Spanish former Arsenal and Atlético Madrid soccer player José Antonio Reyes clapping Otero on. It had garnered more than 4 million views by early Wednesday.
