The first few times I saw this Turkish Airlines ad — embedded below — on CNN International, I didn’t recognize Oscar Award winning actor Kevin Costner. Instead, I noted the ad’s other elements: The twist at the end, the catchy tune, and the various appeals to male vanity.
But then a pal, K, mentioned Costner’s involvement, and I gave the spot another viewing. And indeed, it’s Costner:
Predictably snarky commentary can be found here and here, and a Turkish Airlines billboard featuring Costner and the “Feel Like a Star” campaign can be seen here.
