OK, now back to a time when air hostesses (as they are still sometimes known in the UK) would provide kindness and grace to joyful businessmen… at least on the TV commercials! Here are the British Caledonian ads with a catchy song under the tune of “California Girls” from the Beach Boys.

The sight of these otherwise serious people giving the Caledonian Girls this kind of a show is amusing! On the other hand, we are told by the singing businessmen the cultural stereotypes: the Far Eastern women are graceful, the Germans are always on time, and so on…

This time it’s only one businessman and he’s singing about “all kinds of girls” following him all the way to the check-in desk. Later, other businessmen join him, just like on the previous ad!
