Jennifer Aniston is currently starring in a brand new commercial for the luxurious Gulf carrier airline Emirates, and she did it clad only in a bathrobe, with toilet bag and loofah in hand.
Hollywood star Jennifer Aniston is quite likely no stranger to transatlantic flights and probably flies in style quite often. This will no doubt continue now that she is married to her brand new husband, Justin Theroux.
Released on YouTube Monday, Aniston is currently appearing in the latest and very humorous commercial for the Emirates airline, in which she will no doubt ruffle the feathers of various US airlines in the process, who don’t have quite the same level of luxury as the Gulf carrier airline. Watch the new commercial below.
As the commercial begins, we see 46-year-old Aniston frantically rushing around an airplane in her white bathrobe, looking for the on-board shower. She approaches cabin crew and asks them where the shower is, before being mocked by the condescending crew.

“Hi, I’m looking for the shower?” she says to the cabin crew, who look at each other wide eyed, and one says sardonically, “There are no showers here Ma’am.”
Aniston says to them that she is going to look pretty silly dressed like this going to the bar, to which the crew member tells her there is no bar, but one of the cabin crew does say they have hot towels and peanuts.
“Emirates planes have showers and they have bars,” Aniston says, waving a loofah back scrubber brush and with her toiletry bag in hand, to which one male cabin crew members tells her, “This isn’t an Emirates plane, Ma’am.”
The whole cabin crew of the plane then packs out laughing, pointing and mocking Jennifer Aniston.

As reported by People and fortunately for Jennifer, the whole experience turns out to be a nightmare, as she wakes up, relieved, next to her iPad in her luxurious private suite in the Emirates A380 First Class cabin.
Next we see Aniston confiding with an understanding barman in the Emirates A380 onboard lounge, telling him of her terrible nightmare.
“I was on a plane and it was nothing like this.”
While the barman commiserates with Aniston, she then asks, “Hey, is there someone we could talk to about maybe flying this around a little bit longer … just like an hour?”
This isn’t the only advertising the popular Hollywood actress will be involved in for Emirates as according to an article on the Inquisitr, she signed a $5 million contract with the luxury airline back in August this year. Jennifer Aniston is set to appear in both TV and print ads for the airline.
Emirates Senior Divisional Vice-President of Marketing, Boutros Boutros explained that they like to do something different to the normal airline industry commercials and prefer to give them a humorous touch.
“We couldn’t think of anyone better suited for the role than Jennifer Aniston and we wrote the script with her in mind.”
“Her professionalism and comedic talent shone on the set and we are very pleased with the outcome.”
The airline is no doubt trying to keep up with the humorous advertising on offer by a competitor, Turkish Airlines. Among several funny ads, a couple of years ago they produced a humorous video with basketball star Kobe Bryant and football icon Lionel Messi, having a selfie competition while flying around the world on Turkish Airlines. That advert is included below.
