Jason Momoa played up to his superhero charm on Tuesday, August 2, after a video of him giving out water on a Hawaiian Airlines flight went viral on social media. The 'Aquaman' star, who recently turned 43, was pictured dispensing Momoa's sustainable Mananalu water while donning a grey suit, a black crewneck T-shirt, and a bright pink flower tucked in his hair.

Momoa's first day on the job as cabin staff was witnessed by the fortunate passengers on a Hawaiian aircraft as he distributed bottles of his water, known as Mananalu, from a trolly. The video was released on TikTok by Kylee Yoshikawa. "My aunty sent me this vid, I just thought i'd share," she captioned the video, which featured an instrumental rendition of Disney's 'Under the Sea'. It has been viewed by 3.5 million users so far.

Many excited users commented on the video. One remarked, "I'd push my service button every 10 minutes,' while another dubbed Momoa as "Aguaman," in reference to a Spanish word for ‘water’ and his role in the film 'Aquaman'. "His marketing team is genius lol," said a user.

Momoa later shared a behind-the-scenes video on Instagram in which he introduces himself to the passengers as the "water master" of the aircraft. "Mahalo @hawaiianairlines for allowing me and my team to capture this special moment," he wrote in the caption. "It's a dream come true. My idea to create @Mananalu.water came to me while on a flight."

"I'm grateful for your support and it's an honor to have Hawaiian Airlines be the first airline to partner with Mananalu. We're on a mission to end single-use plastic," Momo wrote. "Drink one, remove one - For every bottle of Mananalu sold, we remove one plastic bottle from the ocean. We have removed 3 MILLION plastic bottles from the ocean this year. Don't stop making waves to save our beautiful planet. aloha j"

Mamamalu water was created by Momoa, a passionate environmentalist who previously pursued his childhood dream of becoming a marine biologist. With the help of the Mananalu company, he will be able to divert the equivalent of one "planet-hurting plastic bottle from ocean-going waste" for each bottle of Mamamalu that is consumed. The Mananalu water bottles are made of aluminum and are designed to be reused several times.

Momoa's role as a flight attendant comes at a time when a number of prominent celebrities have come under fire for using private planes to go to various areas. Taylor Swift, Kylie Jenner, and Travis Scott were listed among the Top 10 celebrity carbon dioxide polluters in a report by PageSix, although Swift's agent rejected the accusations, claiming she lends out her private jet.
