Air Canada – Hello Goodbye

In this memorable, feel-good commercial from 1993, Air Canada showcases residents of various countries around the world (no actors) and children in the background singing a version of “Hello, Goodbye” from The Beatles. A great image campaign for Air Canada, as an airline that unites the people from around the world, thanks to its partnership with Air France, Continental and United (a few years before Star Alliance). This commercial was directed by Jean-Claude Lauzon who, sadly, died in a plane crash in 1997. While the commercial aired in both official languages originally, this video’s narration is in French, with English subtitles.

UPDATE (Sep. 1, 2010): Now in English!
