Bucks' forward Giannis Antetokounmpo starred in a new safety video for Greece's Aegean Airlines. The Greek Freak himself takes passengers through your typical pre-flight safety tutorial in a giant warehouse, which is honestly probably because the 6'11" NBA star would have a hard time standing completely upright in a plane.

After a short introduction from a flight attendant, Antetokounmpo hops from set to set as he goes through the necessary steps in case of emergency–showing passengers how to do everything from fastening the seatbelt to using the life vest properly.

Antetokounmpo began his professional basketball career in Greece, spending one season playing in the country's semi-pro basketball division before declaring for the NBA draft in 2013. He was selected by the Bucks with the 15th overall pick that year.

Now in his sixth season in Milwaukee, the 24-year-old forward is shooting 58.1% from the field and pouring in 27.1 points per game for the NBA's best team. Antetokounmpo is adding 12.6 boards 5.9 assists and 1.4 blocks and steals per game this season.

Captaining 'Team Giannis' in this year's NBA All-Star game, Antetokounmpo is also the subject of a new documentary on his rise within the league that will air prior to All-Star weekend's Saturday night festivities.
