The person who came up with this commercial concept was a genius. In a 1000 years, I do not think I would have ever put Whitey Ford and Salvador Dali together in an ad for an airline, but a brilliant person did just that in this TV spot for Braniff Airlines. Neither of them come across as “natural” in the ad and maybe that is the point of bringing Dali and Ford together for a “surreal” bit of advertising history.
Tell ’em Dali baby!
