The production of the commercial in which Freeman will appear has started today.
Last year THY ran a similarly succesful Batman vs Superman themed campaign as the first Turkish brand represented on the Super Bowl, and has reached about 35% of the American population. Turkish Airlines, which owns a fleet of 335 airliners, flies to 293 destinations worldwide, of which 9 are in the United States.
Freeman gained a lot of sympathy from within the muslim community with his show ‘The Story of God’ he did for National Geographic Channel. Freeman said in the show the islamic call for prayer is one of the most beautiful sounds in the world.
