Emirates airlines fly out new ad with Jennifer Aniston
Published on October 7, 2015
The sky giant Emirates has uploaded its latest advertisement of its A380 aircraft which features famous Hollywood actress Jennifer Aniston. Most popular for her role in sit comedy Friends, Aniston uses her comedy charm in the humorous one minute video. The ad shows Aniston in a bathrobe heading for a shower aboard a dull grey plane; when she can’t find the shower she asks the cabin crew and they start making fun of her, laughing and offering her snacks and hot towels instead. Next shot, Aniston wakes up from her nightmare in a luxury bed in the business class of Emirates A380, sits at the bar and retells the empathetic bartender of her nightmare. Showing off the luxury Emirates flight that have on board showers, spas and bars along with Aniston, the video directed by Bryan Buckley cradled up 1,588,859 views on Youtube since publishedon Monday, October 5.
Interesting enough the advertisement not only heated the competition with Western Airlines, but also with the Gulf airlines like Etihad and Qatar airways. Jennifer Aniston became the star of the Emirates advertisement campaign not long after Etihad picked Nicole Kidman as their brand ambassador. According to New York Post, Emirates had to cash out Dh18 million for Aniston to appear in the TV and online campaign.
