Southwest Airlines: The Forensics Guy Ruins Everything

What is that weird wooden thing in that field? It’s trying to tell those detectives something. They want to wait to see what forensics thinks. Forensics flies in on a helicopter…and whoops. Wanna get away? Southwest’s got you covered.

Southwest Airlines: Actually This Basketball Team Is Flying Back Today

When you’re a coach, you give inspirational speeches. This basketball coach for “State” believes in his team so much that he booked tickets for them all the way to the championship game.

Southwest’s Wanna Get Away: I Am Fenwick

Southwest Airlines Brings Back “Wanna Get Away”

Southwest Airlines’ “Wanna Get Away” was a well-loved and prolific campaign that ran for 10 years. I think the spots worked so well because they combined universally undesirable scenarios (awkward and uncomfortable situations) with an obvious product benefit (Southwest’s flights are so cheap that you can make a quick escape). So now they’re bringing it back with a new “Wanna Get Away” campaign. The first spot shows a secret witness whose identity is revealed by a hapless production assistant during a live interview. Southwest also has a social component to the campaign, where people can tweet #WannaGetAway with their embarrassing stories for a chance to win a getaway to an island off the cost of Belize.
