New Video: Kenny G plays sax on flight from Tampa to Los Angeles — watch

A Tampa local said random ass concert "probably made my year."

Kenny G had a concert at Clearwater's Coachman Park on Friday, and the performance apparently wasn't enough for him.

UPDATE: Kenny G spoke to CL about his side of the story. Read the explanation here.

Tampa local Frank Wyszynski posted that he was on a Delta flight from Tampa to San Francisco Los Angeles, and found himself filming the famed saxophone man and meme initiating passengers into a new kind of mile high club.

"So random. Probably made my year," he said in a Facebook post.

CL reached out to the HART marketing specialist, and here's what he said.

"Full context is even better. Woman on board raises funds for Relay for Life after she lost her daughter to cancer. She happens to sit next to Kenny G," he said. "Midway through the flight (after she begged him), they announce Kenny G will play if the plane raises $1,000. Within five minutes, the plane raised close to $2,000. Pretty awesome to see."

Have a look at Wyszynski's clip above, and see TMZ's video below.

A previous version of this story said the flight was headed to San Francisco.
