Heathrow Airport has released its first TV advert to celebrate the 70-years anniversary.
The 90-second spot, titled “First Flight”, and playing David Bowie’s “When I Live My Dream” in the background, invites you to explore the airport through the eyes of a little girl and to rediscover the magic of flight.
The kid is shown making her luggage, going to the airport with her parents, passing through the checkpoints, looking at the people waiting in line or saying goodbye, at display windows and at airplanes taking off and, eventually, embarking.
The final onscreen line is “To the next 70 years of first flights”.
Lyrics “When I Live My Dream”
When I live my dream, I’ll take you with me
Riding on a golden horse
We’ll live within my castle, with people there to serve you
Happy at the sound of your voice
Baby, I’ll slay a dragon for you
Or banish wicked giants from the land
But you will find, that nothing in my dream can hurt you
We will only love each other as forever
When I live my dream
When I live my dream, I’ll forgive the things you’ve told me
And the empty man you left behind
It’s a broken heart that dreams, it’s a broken heart you left me
Only love can live in my dream
I’ll wish, and the thunder clouds will vanish
Wish, and the storm will fade away
Wish again, and you will stand before me while the sky will paint an overture
And trees will play the rhythm of my dream
