Sandra Oh is back with a follow-up commercial from Air Canada. Once again, it is worth watching.
Last month, I wrote about a new ad campaign from Air Canada that poked fun (good-natured fun) at Canadian stereotypes such as Poutine, Caesars, and saying “soooory” or “eh”.
I also thought, though most disagreed, that the ad took a subtle dig at the United States…or at least the current occupant of the White House.

This month, Air Canada is back with another ad starring Sandra Oh. This one focuses on being kind to others. Air Canada describes it this way:
Canadians are some of the most courteous and loved travelers. But you don’t have to be a Canadian to travel like one. We teamed up with Sandra Oh to help bring the world a little more Canada, one apology at a time.
The world needs more #TLC
I like this ad a lot…imagine a world in which we helped others with their bags before grabbing our own.
But I guess I cannot help but to overanalyze airline ads. Chivalry is not dead, but I do think that Air Canada was very deliberate in using two females for the role. Would any of my female readers be offended if a man (or woman) assumed they needed help with their bag and helped without first asking?
Want more tender loving care in the world? The answer is to travel like a Canadian…that’s the message of the new ad. And overall, I agree. We can all use a bit more #TLC.
