I was up earlier than usual a couple of days ago (4AM) and I saw what I knew right away would be a cool commercial. In my sleep daze I got a bit excited to see what the brand was and it turned out to be Korea Air. Lightbulb! I remembered seeing what I considered to be the best airline spot ever some time last year. It was indeed Korea Air, but I’d forgotten all about it. Naturally I tracked it down to see it again and it’s just as good as I remember. The feeling hit me almost instantly, like I need to get out of here! It was so sophisticated (like me). It was too good to be an airline spot. I literally had a knee-jerk reaction and a good laugh “like GTFOH!”
Without further ado… here it is. It’s a work of art.
Interestingly enough, a person in the comments (Freya Wissing) claims to be the flight attendant in the ad. She says she wasn’t paid for the amount of work she did. Hopefully, things have been resolved with the past year since she posted it because I really love this spot and it’s not often that I say that. It’s a shame that the spot is aired so early, but I understand though. It could be targeting international businessmen having drinks in airport lobbies. I caught it on MSNBC’s Meet the Press while getting my politics fix.
