United Bids ‘Namaste’ to Global Travel


By Kiran Aditham Comment

If you feel like getting in the multilingual mood, here’s a new spot from McGarryBowen for United Airlines dubbed “Pecan,” which features an assortment of languages including Italian, French and Japanese. The globe-trotting spot hypes the airline’s travels to Europe, Asia and Central America, starring one character who knows his way around foreign languages. It’s breezy, quick and painless and includes the classic “Rhapsody” theme, but we do miss the most recent United theme redux. Credits after the jump.
