Video: 'How the Airbus A350 was created' fake advert circulated on internet, appears to be Boeing 787 commercial

An anti-Airbus A350 video clip circulating on the internet puporting to be a commercial promoting the Boeing 787 has been revealed as a parody.

...This could lead some to assume that the video clip is an official Boeing advert. However, Flight believes it to be a parody. Does any reader have any further details? Do you know the actors involved? Do you know where and when it was filmed? Send your leads to our web editor Justin Wastnage.

Do duct tape and the CFRP tape they use to "spin/wind" the "Dreamliner" sections have similar properties? Big grin

ROTFLMAO.

I thought the video was great. Personally, I thought it was all correct to every word.

Apparently, the "bad boys" who produced this video parody weren't too budget constrained as the production values are fairly high, the commercial parodies shown on SNL are often of much lower quality.

Creative.

Boeing should purchase the rights to it, dub it into French and run it for a couple months in gay Pari...I'm sure the humor won't be lost in the translation.

That's the best thing I've heard yet.

I think Boeing is wise to keep its distance from that video. If the 350xwb becomes a best seller, Boeing doesn't want to be seen with egg on its face. What's the phrase . . . he who laughs last?
