Emirates adds another feather in its cap with Gerry the Goose ‘Fly Better’ campaign

Emirates adds another feather in its cap with Gerry the Goose ‘Fly Better’ campaign

New TV and online advertising campaign takes playful look at the airline’s Fly Better


Following in the footsteps of iconic film and TV personalities Jennifer Aniston,
Chris Hemsworth and Jeremy Clarkson, Emirates latest brand ambassador Gerry the Goose is inviting
customers to take a gander at the benefits and services of the world’s largest international airline,
and choose to ‘Fly Better’.

From September, the global ad campaign will be in full flight across the world, reminding customers
that Emirates provides an ‘impeckable’ travel experience on-board with award-winning in-flight
entertainment, world-class cabin crew, regionally inspired cuisine and acclaimed beverages. To
compliment the ‘best-in sky’ offering, Emirates also offers an impressive on-ground experience–
through a myriad of online and home check-in options, chauffeur-driven airport transfers and
outstanding lounges.

The campaign storyline follows Gerry as he ruffles feathers by deciding to Fly Better aboard a
comfortable and sophisticated Emirates Premium Economy cabin, while his migrating bird-brethren
are in ‘fowl humour’ after a long and tiring flight by wing. Gerry is spotted smugly bypassing his
counterparts as they fly outside the plane window, while he indulges in a delicious meal and reclines
in his spacious seat to enjoy ‘The Goose, The Bad and The Ugly’ movie on his 13.3” personal
entertainment screen.

‘In terms of the qualities and profile we look for in our brand ambassadors – we are spreading our
wings,’ said SVP of Marketing & Brand at Emirates, Richard Billington. ‘Gerry is a savvy traveller who
knows what he wants and where he wants to go- but he’s adamant he’ll do it in style, with luxury and
comfort as a priority. Having witnessed his seamless travel experience, we are confident that next
time his friends will choose to Fly Better.’

Gerry the Goose Bio

Gerry’s career began in Emirates Headquarters in Dubai, where the concept of his journey was
ideated and began to take flight. Then onto to Untold Studios in London, where initial 3D models of
geese were brought to life via Computer-Generated Imagery (CGI). The CGI and filming process took
14 weeks and involved a talented team finessing every feather along with lighting and texture, while
ensuring carefully created movements brought the character to life. This included time to animate
Gerry’s friends, a shoot in London to capture the nature scenes, and a shoot on board Emirates’
aircraft in Dubai.

Relatively new to the acting scene, Gerry cites his career highlight so far as being featured in the
Emirates TV ad campaign. The ad will run in 25 countries for one month, starting on the 30 th  August.
Throughout filming, Gerry collaborated with British voiceover talent Michael Cronin to capture the
dulcet tones of an experienced nature documentarist.

Gerry’s species heritage is Canada goose (Branta canadensis), large wild geese with black heads and
necks, white cheeks, white under the chin, and a brown body. They are native to the arctic and
temperate regions of North America, found during migration across the Atlantic in northern Europe.

Gerry the Goose admires the acting work of Ryan Gosling, who he says ‘gives him goose bumps’.
