Election years in the US are often miserable given the incessant mud slinging which some refer to as “campaigning”. In better news, US presidential election years are also the same year as the Summer Olympic Games are held. Airlines often use this national pride in their ad campaigns.
One of my favorite commercials from four years ago was the British Airways ad from 2012 when London hosted the summer games. United’s newest safety video features some flight attendants from recent videos along with a few American past (and presumably future) Olympians. They also have seem to have some references to themes from past videos.
The Olympics in Rio are more than 3 months away, but in a nod to its history, United celebrates its legacy as the carrier of the US Olympic team, and presumably will be rolling this out on their video equipped flights soon.
Can you find (and better yet name) the US Olympians featured? What about the flight attendant ‘stars’ from past videos? Did you find the llama from the current video? Any other surprises?
