Ouch! Norwegian Airlines uses the Brangelina split for cheap airfare ads

On Friday, Norwegian Airlines decided to use the Brangelina split to their advantage when they advertised discounted airfares to Los Angeles by poking fun at Brad Pitt.

The internet is quick. It took only a few days for the Brangelina split to become funny - at least to some. On Friday, Norwegian Airlines decided to use it to their advantage when they advertised discounted airfares to Los Angeles by poking fun at Brad Pitt.

The ad read like a matrimonial: “Actor. LA. Newly single. Seeks likeminded partner with GSOH (Good Sense of Humor),” followed by their aggressively-priced fare of £169 (โ‚น 14,000). Not too shabby.

The internet loved it. Especially another, more direct variation of the same concept:

Angelina Jolie, 41, on Monday filed for divorce from Pitt, 52, citing irreconcilable differences and seeking custody of their six children.

The two actors are among America’s biggest film stars. Together they came to be known as “Brangelina” -- Hollywood’s most glamorous and celebrated couple in decades.

The A-listers wed in France in August two years ago, but have been a couple since 2004. They have three biological and three adopted children together.

On Friday, the FBI has opened an investigation of Brad Pitt, amid news reports that the Hollywood actor’s abusive behaviour toward his children was the reason behind the separation.
