It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Superman in Turkish Airline’s new safety video. Batman, Wonder Woman and more Lego favorites star in this collaboration between the Turkish Airlines and The Lego Movie 2 teams.
Turkish Airlines hopped on the trend of entertaining flight safety videos by crafting this engaging video for grabbing flyers’ attention while on board. In the video, Lego movie star Emmett hops around the Turkish Airlines aircraft, made of more than 2 million Lego bricks, as he covers essential safety measures. By partnering with The Lego Movie franchise, Turkish Airlines aims to excite and educate flyers with bright visuals and catchy lyrics as they prepare for takeoff.
This co-branded video, which quickly garnered press attention, markets The Lego Movie 2 while promoting aircraft safety, making the content beneficial for both the movie franchise and Turkish Airlines.
As AdAge said, “If this doesn't get you to watch the safety video, we don't know what will.”
