GALLERY 08: SAS - Backpacker Youth

As the camera pans on this slice of Hollywood thriller-like action, it's easy to forget that you are watching an ad for air travel. A neatly edited number that opens with a man being beaten up with a baseball bat. Enter a groovy backpacker who strolls into the shop and bravely fights off the criminal. Yet, in a cruel twist of fate, she is accused of the crime herself. Time to make a run for it and book the next flight home on SAS. A refreshing departure for traditional airline advertising.
