Watch: Clarkson unveils new Emirates Airline first class cabin like a pro
Emirates on Monday released the advert for its new first class private suites, fronted by TV celebrity and motoring expert Jeremy Clarkson.
This follows the global launch of Emirates’ latest fully enclosed first class private suites, which were inspired by Mercedes-Benz, for its Boeing 777-300 fleet at the Dubai Air Show.
Drawing on Clarkson’s humour, the one-minute-long ad shows Clarkson, dressed uncharacteristically in a smart black tuxedo, narrate the features in a way he’d do while test-driving on Top Gear.
“Seriously, these new seats on Emirates are better than half the hotels I ever stay in,” he says.
Clarkson then delivers the punchline, as an Emirates aircraft zooms overhead, revealing that the vehicle he is talking about travels at a top speed of 700 miles per hour, and “it even comes with pyjamas”.
Jeremy has replaced Hollywood star Jennifer Anniston as the celebrity face of the airline.
