British Airways – The British (Johnny Foreigner)

P.J. O’Rourke, a U.S. political satirist, is an unforgettable figure in this award-winning commercial from 1999 that makes fun of the British. Many stereotypes are depicted such as the cup of tea, cricket and curry. Where does this all lead to? That foreigners still love the British, to the extent that they made of British Airways “The World’s Favourite Airline”! The boastful melody in the background is an excerpt of “Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity” from Gustav Holst’s The Planets.
