You’ve seen the world’s biggest billboard. Could this be the world’s longest commercial? Emirates airlines just launched nonstop service from Dubai to São Paulo, a flight that takes 14 hours and 40 minutes. To promote the route, they filmed a Brazilian guy named Fernando Ferreira talking about his home country, nonstop, for 14 hours and 40 minutes straight. “No breaks, no cuts, no edits, no cheating,” Ferreira insists. That’s the trailer posted above. You’re welcome to subject yourself to the whole thing at NonstopFernando.com.
