Emirates has released its advertising campaign for the airline’s First Class private suites, fronted by TV celebrity and motoring expert Jeremy Clarkson.
This follows hot on the heels of the global launch of Emirates’ latest fully enclosed First Class private suites at the Dubai Air Show on Monday.
Drawing on Clarkson’s humour and close association with motoring, the ad spot begins with close up shots of a leather seat, luxury detailing, soft lighting, a sophisticated flat screen, and control buttons. Meanwhile, dressed uncharacteristically in a smart black tuxedo, Clarkson narrates the features in a way that leads the viewer to assume he is referring to a new car.
He then delivers the punchline, as an Emirates aircraft zooms overhead, revealing that the vehicle he is talking about travels at a top speed of 700 miles per hour, and “it even comes with pyjamas” – a product that Emirates provides to its First Class passengers.
Clarkson said: “Seriously, these new seats on Emirates are better than half the hotels I ever stay in.”
Boutros Boutros, Emirates’ divisional senior vice president for corporate communications, marketing and brand said: “Jeremy Clarkson is one of the most recognisable faces in the motoring world. In addition to his credentials as a motoring journalist and presenter, Clarkson is also passionate about engineering, especially pioneering and innovative work. More info
