Frontier Airlines flight attendant Alfredo Rivera has yet to address the viral incident in which he duct-taped an unruly passenger to his seat after the passenger allegedly groped members of the female flight crew and became physically combative during a flight.
But Rivera was given a voice in a spoof news report of the incident.
Shared by TMZ, the parody video features YouTube personality "The Real Spark" and starts and ends with actual news footage from the passenger-related turbulence in the sky.
You can watch the hilarious video, below.

The Real Spark adopted the persona of Rivera and gave his job description in a bogus interview:
"I'm a flight attendant. That means I 'attend' the flights."
"Sometimes, our job has us 'attending' to crazy people. But you push us too far, you gonna have to 'attend' this ass whooping!"
"Because on this particular flight, I'm sitting in the jump seat, and I'm just looking at him act a damn fool."
"I said, 'that's enough.' I got up and walked over there."
He added as a side note that the belligerent passenger smelled like, "Marlboro cigarettes, four shots of Everclear, and regret. So I know something's about to go down."
The New York Post reported that 22-year-old Maxwell Berry was arrested and charged with three counts of battery after he allegedly groped the female flight attendants and physically attacked a male flight attendant who was asked to keep an eye on the disruptive passenger.
In the fake interview, "Alfredo" said the defining moment was when Berry "touched my titties, 'cause I don't play that!!!"'
"So what I did was take out the duct-tape...and I said 'we about to mummify yo ass!'"
"And I wrapped him up. Better than any Christmas present you've ever seen."
"He won't be coming on no more Frontier flights at all."
The clip cut back to real newscasters laughing, with an anchorwoman giggling, "I don't know about that. Oh, boy."
Online, Twitter users were also howling over The Real Spark's spoof report.
Viewers highlighted their favorite moments of the video.
And some seemed convinced they watched the real Alfredo Rivera giving his account of the incident.
The real incident resulted in the flight crew being put on paid leave as an investigation is underway.
The real Alfredo Rivera has not publicly addressed his restraining tactic, which was supported by one of the largest flight attendant unions.
The president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, Sara Nelson, said in a statement:
"Flight Attendants have faced an onslaught of disruptions on our flights this year."
"The situation on Frontier this weekend is one of the worst examples. A drunk and irate passenger verbally, physically, and sexually assaulted multiple members of the crew."
"When he refused to comply after multiple attempts to de-escalate, the crew was forced to restrain the passenger with the tools available to them onboard. We are supporting the crew."
