Anything can fly – Since a very young age I have been obsessed with things that fly. From running around the garden chasing butterflies and reading about Icarus flying too close to the sun. To just lying on my back staring at vapour trails in the sky, the fascination of flight has always been something that interests me.
Obviously I love travel and, like many of my fellow travel enthusiasts, I am always excited to spend time at an airport or up in the sky. The view from the clouds, whether it be in a hot air balloon, aeroplane or even just from the top of a mountain is one of the most awe-inspiring views.
Why am I talking about flight so much……….?
…………well recently I saw this advert from Avios called Anything can fly
Some adverts really grab my attention especially those that are travel related. A couple of years ago I loved the Korean Air adverts and now I love this Avios advert. It’s quite quirky in the way it shows everyday things flying. My favourite bits are probably the stereo flying down the river and the washing machine flying high at the end.
Since watching the advert I have found out that instead of using lots of special effects, Avios actually got an agricultural engineer to really make things fly. Yes that’s right this guy got a washing machine to fly!
Here is the video of how the advert ‘Anything can fly’ was made
When I watched this I couldn’t stop laughing at the thought of someone driving down a country lane somewhere and seeing a flying lawnmower hovering above a field during filming.
I am now considering buying myself one of those remote control helicopters. They look like so much fun. I often see guys stood up on the hills flying their remote control planes and things. Yeah it’s a bit geeky but I actually think I’d enjoy it!
So are you a flight geek? Have you seen any travel adverts that have really caught your eye? If so I’d love to read about them so please share in the comments below.
