The beautiful star of Jet Blue’s “Recurring Dream” is a photo-real CG pigeon who reflects contentedly about the joys of flying in style, including perks like room to stretch out, having all amenities within reach and enjoying a welcoming environment. That story, very much an analogy for the perks of flying Jet Blue, was directed by Smuggler’s Brian Beletic who does fine work putting viewers shotgun for an aerial adventure, which even includes a flight pattern over a giant bird seed fountain. Working closely with Beletic and Jet Blue agency Mullen Lowe, MPC’s team created the happy flyer and crafted his seamless integration into the commercial’s clever story.
