Malaysia Airlines 'Lose Yourself' Ad Is Fake

By March 16, 2014

Follow me on:

OUR NEW BOEING 777 - LOSE YOURSELF ON A JOURNEY OF EPIC PROPORTIONS - WHEREVER YOU GO NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW

The viral image above, which purports to be a reproduction of an old Malaysia Airlines ad bearing the unfortunate slogan, "OUR NEW BOEING 777 - LOSE YOURSELF ON A JOURNEY OF EPIC PROPORTIONS," is — in addition to being a sick, tasteless joke — a hoax.

No such ad was ever created or published. The aircraft depicted is actually an Airbus A380, not a Boeing 777, and indeed the original ad copy, which dates from 2012, said: "OUR NEW A380 - A JOURNEY OF EPIC PROPORTIONS. THE PRIDE OF OUR NATION."

Is the one showing it (the 777) behind Gilligan, the Professor and the Skipper fake, too? Because the B&W photo makes me think it might be fake…

Boeing will be interested to learn the airlines added two engines… and a second deck.
