Airports get stuffy about Mr F Grass

Casting aside the old adage, “never work with children or animals” Banks Hoggins O’Shea/FCB has opted to use the ultimate experienced traveller for their ads for – a live goose.

Despite enlisting the services of the only trainable breed of the bird – an African goose – others have been less willing to throw caution to the wind. For the print ad, shot at Stansted Airport, the agency used a stuffed goose, then later superimposed a picture of a live goose.

For the shooting of TV ad, only Malaga airport agreed to allow a live goose travelling under the name of Mr F Grass to wander around its arrivals lounge.
