Can United Airlines make the skies friendly again?
“Orchestra,” the campaign’s debut spot, sets the stage, so to speak, for all that is to come. It shows a symphony orchestra onboard a United plane performing the carrier’s longtime signature brand music, Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue.”
The symphonic commercial, which also uses some lilting ad copy with orchestral connotations to tie up all aspects of the global campaign, ends in a crescendo of sound and a voiceover description of United as “flyer friendly,” the key buzz phrase for the entire campaign. Actor Matt Damon is the star voiceover talent used in all the commercials.
