United Airlines is an official partner of the U.S. Olympic Team. In additional to help get athletes to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for the Olympic Games & Paralympic Games, they have also unveiled a series of ads and other videos to help promote the partnership & the athletes involved.
The newest United advertisement shows various American athletes making their way through the airport process, from check-in, to security, to boarding. The ad is packed full of athletes from at least a dozen different sports. Watch the video, titled “One Journey. Two Teams.”, below:
The ad is a nice way to showcase as many Olympic athletes & their sports as possible, while still fitting United’s tradition, including the use of “Rhapsody In Blue.” There are some funny moments in the video, especially when Missy Franklin jumps out of the water into the plane & is given a tiny hot towel.
Earlier this year, United also put together a new inflight safety video featuring some of the same Team USA Olympic athletes. You can watch that video below:
There is also a United website where you can learn more about their support of Team USA & join in on the action.
