United Airlines – Orcas

Again, the mystery notion is used here. United Airlines starts showing us a parked Boeing 747, and lets us peek inside and… surprise! We find orcas swimming in harmony, under United’s signature song, George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody In Blue”. The off-screen voice informs us about their spacious cabins on their 747s. No need to say more: seeing these marine animals swimming inside something seen by us as a rather small space is already enough! The special effects are excellent, and it really sounds like the orcas were swimming inside a cabin full of water. The only question is: if the cabin is full of water, without air pockets, how can they breathe? They’re mammals after all!
