Advert directed by industry veteran and Oscar-nominee Bryan Buckley features a storyline with young passenger on A380
Jennifer Aniston has returned for a sequel with Emirates on board its A380 aircraft.
In the latest advert featuring the Hollywood star, directed by industry veteran and Oscar-nominee Bryan Buckley, she emerges from the onboard shower on the superjumbo only to find Cooper, a feisty young boy, playing in her private suite in the Emirates First Class cabin.
The two strike up a conversation and build rapport, as they stroll through Emirates’ Business Class cabin and Onboard Lounge.
Sitting on the stairs between the lower and upper decks of the aircraft, Cooper tells Jennifer about his aspirations to become a pilot – of 'this plane', pointing to his model Emirates A380 aircraft.
In Economy Class, Cooper is finally reunited with his surprised parents where Jennifer chooses to remain and enjoy Emirates' ICE inflight entertainment system with Cooper. The ad ends with Cooper’s mother relaxing in Jennifer’s private suite, having exchanged places with the Hollywood star.
Boutros Boutros, Emirates’ divisional senior vice president, Corporate Communications, Marketing & Brand explained: “A year ago, when we launched our first ad featuring Jennifer Aniston, we were overwhelmed by what a social phenomenon it became.
"The humour resonated with audiences around the world, and the ad was viewed by millions of people, generating thousands of conversations. Fans of both Emirates and Jennifer loved her effortless charm and humour, and enjoyed a story that deviated from traditional airline advertising.
“We were overrun with requests to see Jennifer again. She has an enduring, universal appeal that is at once sophisticated, but also down to earth – a great match for our brand. This new ad perfectly captures the fun, spontaneity and glamour of flying on Emirates, and we are confident audiences will find it as memorable as the first.”
