a fun and eye-catching one that presents “red tape rescue” episode with
non-serious, fast paced music in the background. When a business man tries to
use his frequent flyer miles, the 2 men in the go cart say to one another that
“that airline is gonna nail that guy with restrictions when he tries to use his
miles”.  It’s then that huge ball of red
tape chases the man through the airport and he screams out to the guys riding
alongside him in the go-cart that he can’t escape the red tape. The southwest
guys have him jump on their vehicle saving him from the red tape and the end of
the commercial says “unlimited reward seats. No blackout dates. No red tape.”

put out, Southwest is a safe airline that is fair and offers unlimited reward

5.     Does it work? Why or why
not? Any general observations?
Yes, not only is the commercial interesting and funny, it also makes
