Remember the woman who stood on top of Burj Khalifa to shoot an advertisement for the Dubai-based airline Emirates? Emirates is the largest airline and flag carrier in the United Arab Emirates. The airline has occupied the top spot on the trends after their new advertisement goes viral. A few months back, a video got viral in which a woman stands on the top of Burj Khalifa in Dubai for an Emirates ad.
New Emirates Ad
Nicole Smith-Ludvik, who is a professional skydiving instructor, features in the Emirates ad. She dressed as an Emirates cabin crew member. In a new Emirates ad, Nicole Smith-Ludvik again stood on top of Burj Khalifa. However, this time she has a company of huge airbus Emirates A380.
In the ad, Nicole Smith-Ludvik has some placards. The first placard reads, “Fly the iconic Emirates A380 to the world’s greatest show.” Then, an airbus A380 plane flies in the background. The ad ends with Nicole Smith-Ludvik waving at the flight.
While posting the video on YouTube, the Emirates airline said, “The world’s greatest show brings friends together on top of the world’s tallest building. Enjoy a free Expo 2020 Dubai day pass with every ticket. Fly Emirates, Fly Better.”
Emirates Behind The Scene Video
The airlines have also said in the BTS video, the Airbus A380 was flown 11 times around Burj Khalifa to get the shot where it flies past Nicole Smith-Ludvik in the background. The airbus was flown at the speed of 145 knots. The speed is too slow for an airbus A380.
In the video, the airbus appears very close to Nicole. However, it was 0.5 miles away and also at the level with the top of the Burj Khalifa. Nicole Smith-Ludvik said “This is one of the most exciting projects I’ve ever done. Thanks, Emirates and the entire team.”
