Take a moment to fly on an Etihad Airways A380 with Nicole Kidman.
We aren’t offering a sweepstakes or contest that garners a trip around the world with a Hollywood A-lister as your guide.
We are actually talking about Kidman starring in an ad of sorts that actually highlights the lavish nature of Etihad’s luxury airplane.
Now a regular commercial spotlighting amenities is so last decade.
Thankfully, officials put together the following virtual reality video called “Reimagine” that stars the actor from such movies as “Moulin Rouge!” “Eyes Wide Shut” and “The Others.”
It’s a brilliant move considering there isn’t exactly a treasure trove of content you can use on your Oculus Rift or Google Cardboard at the moment.
Oh, there are a bunch of videos out there, but you will be hard-pressed to find anything starring the likes of Kidman.
Etihad not only gets eager tech-driven fans to stop by with their VR-headset, it lavishes them with the sights and sounds of one of its flights.

Shane O'Hare, Etihad Airways' senior vice president marketing, was excited about the prospect, via a press release: “This immersive VR film is a massive step-change in the way we present the Etihad Airways brand and product to the consumer using highly innovative new mediums. Based on the success of our recent campaign with Nicole, the decision to take this partnership to the next level was an obvious one.”
It’s immensely cool to step through the cabin and explore the possibilities of business class and the ultra luxurious Residence.
We just could have used a bit more of a plot.
