A ticket to visit Mum

Agency Network: 
July 2013


British Airways launched a long-term campaign in the US telling India Ex-Pats in the US “It's time to Visit Mum!”. The campaign features real people and kicked-off today with an emotional video featuring a mom in India talking about how much she misses her son in America. During the video, she cooks her sons favorite meal for BA to fly to him in New York, but ends up being surprised when instead BA brings her son to her (after not being home for 15 years).

Film advertisement created by Ogilvy, United States for British Airways, within the category: Transport.

What a beautiful way to represent a culture, though as an ad it needs to be condensed

I think this ad is perfect. It really gets where they want. Yes may be its a bit long but i never got bored, i´ve seen 20 seconds ads much more boring that seem longer. Let's do thinks like this, not every ad has to be, funny, smart and 20 seconds long. If a lived far away from my country i would have traveled home immediately after watching this. Congrats!
