Turkish Airlines Unveils New Ad Campaign Featuring Kobe Bryant, Lionel Messi
Turkish Airlines unveiled a new ad campaign, "Widen Your World," highlighted with a new commercial featuring global brand ambassadors Kobe Bryant and Lionel Messi. In the commercial that emphasizes the global network of the airline, Bryant and Messi resume their friendly rivalry by trading "selfies" from exotic locations such as the Red Square in Moscow; The Great Wall of China; the Maldives; Bangkok; and Mount Kilimanjaro. In the ad's final shot, Messi takes a "selfie" in Sultanahmet Square in Istanbul -- only to be photobombed by Bryant.
