JetBlue: Now without Seat Monsters
Posted by Rosepixie on April 15, 2010
This is an animated commercial for JetBlue Airlines.
I don’t find this commercial’s claims about how much space you get in a JetBlue seat remotely believable because I’ve never seen any airplane were a tall, lanky guy got enough space so that if he wanted to stretch his legs out straight ahead of him he would be able to without kicking the seat in front of him. Still, the seat monster from the other airline is funny and, given how much some of my taller friends dread airplanes, actually doesn’t feel that impossible.
I did find myself wondering if the seat monster that kidnapped the guy in the commercial was nice enough to grab his bags along with his laptop.
The ad is cute and definitely makes their point well, even if it isn’t completely believable as presented. Since the seat monster seems to be working for JetBlue, however, I have to wonder how trustworthy they really are. Would you fly with an airline that’s willing to send a seat monster to kidnap passengers from other airlines? I’m not sure I would. It’s a good thing seat monsters don’t really exist. Or maybe they do and I’m just not on their list of people to gobble up, since I usually have enough space in airline seats.
