Is it just me that thinks this Qantas ad looks a little like the Q bloke is being a meanie, hiding the teddy bears from the kids?

By Daniel Bowen Transport blogger / campaigner and spokesperson for the Public Transport Users Association / professional geek. Bunurong land, Melbourne, Australia.

The kids are pretty ugly though. … the whole set has a strange 1950s-esque feel to it – the rug also looks like someone has laid down a whole lot of newspapers to prevent … what, exactly? I think the kids are cute. Doesn’t change my opinion on Qantas though. Mostly I just dislike the ground staff, particularly in Melbourne airport. I wont fly with them for business or pleasure. I’ve let about 100,000 frequent flyer points elapse rather than fly with them. Yeah, it’s creepy. Not as creepy as the Kinder Surprise ad where at first it appears the man is trying to kidnap the girl. Only late in the ad is it revealed he is her father. It looks more like he is ready to surprise them with a new teddy bear. @brian Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum @Jed, sure, that’s what Qantas would LIKE you to believe. could it be that he just STOLE the teddies from the poor little kids with no other toys…. This add is nasty, it reflects qantas exactly after the announcement by Alan Joyce. Arrogant, greedy and ready to steal anything to ensure profit margins remain…such as rights of Australian workers hmmmmm! Comments are closed.
