General public opinion on the split of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may be negative but Norwegian Airline did not miss this chance to announce cheap flights to Los Angeles where the newly “single” Brad Pitt lives. The tagline said “Actor. LA. Newly Single. Seeks the likeminded partner with GSOH.” With this tagline, it announced a cheap flight from London to LA. It was already an indication towards Brad Pitt but did not say it directly. However, the second ad campaign had the tagline “Brad is single” and announced cheap flights from Oslo to LA. The marketing team of Norwegian Airline is being appreciated for its brilliance in using this opportunity to advertise themselves. It has been retweeted several times and its creativity has been appreciated by many. It is an excellent piece of creativity and marketing skills because it uses something that is already known in the market and creates a sensation.
