WATCH: Ad For Dubai Airports Features .. A Penguin?
Apparently, penguins are all the rage these days.
A South American Humboldt penguin is the star of a new advertisement touting Dubai Airports in the United Arab Emirates.
“Pedro” the penguin even has his own Twitter account where interested observers can follow his daily travels through the airport in which he tries everything from the food to the shopping to the sauna.
In the meantime, the two-minute spot that will only play on social media (YouTube and Facebook) will certainly rankle U.S. airlines that already have a problem with Gulf region carriers – the advertisement plays to the music of Fleetwood Mac’s “Go Your Own Way,” which surely cost a pretty penny in rights fees.
There is a short voiceover at the end of the commercial touting all there is to do at Dubai International, but everything is pretty much left to Pedro and his adventures around the airport.
