Ad of the Day: Orbitz

The travel site's new anthem urges you to actually take those vacation days already

It’s no secret that collaboration is essential to growth, but the how of it isn’t always so clear—and it's the understanding of how that is a true competitive advantage. Join Adweek X, a uniquely formatted event on December 4 in LA, to unlock fresh perspectives, true collaboration and growth.

Don't worry gents: Orbitz thinks you look great in that skirt.

Along with its website redesign, the online travel agency is out with a new campaign encouraging all Americans to "Take vacation back"—by actually using all those days off you've earned grinding away at your jobs with single-minded puritanical devotion. Created by BBDO New York, the central spot marks a new positioning for the brand, shedding the old, fast-talking, slapstick sales pitch pushing its intimate knowledge of hotels for an rallying anthem urging more time in the sun—by the pool, on the golf course—or shacked up with your sweetheart in your luxe suite.
