JESUS AIRLINES

JESUS PLANE

JESUS AIRLINES is the boldest Brandpowder’s project to date. We sent a draft of what follows to the Vatican, without response (understandably) but the idea is waiting for an investor with vision and faith. The whole story started with a photograph taken by one of our employees (Bob Gukka) while taking off from a local airport (below, left): the picture shows a landing airplane whose cross-shaped shadow on the airport strip is surprisingly similar to the Christian symbol projected on the grass. The Brandpowder Team got quite excited about the finding. It was a Call, we thought, a revelation from Heaven! And we had to do something about it.

JESUS SKETCH2

The original sketch on this page clearly shows the liaison among faith, flight and fondness (the 3F factor). Why not put all these items in a blender and create an airline company with a holy message?  Jesus Airlines was born, with a logo inspired by the monumental Christ the Redeemer, in Rio de Janeiro. We opted for a flame red background, to provide the brand with a powerful message of love, peace and brotherhood among all nations.

JESUS CARDS

Above: the corporate image has been studied in every detail. Jesus Airlines’ business cards have been turned into a promotional media, thanks to individual personal website where all employees can have their own fan page. Each card, on the other side, presents a holy picture to make passengers feel more protected.

JESUS TICKETS

Above: boarding passes are dipped into incense. Burning is not permitted aboard the airplane, of course, but once home, passengers can extend the Jesus Airlines’ experience enjoying the holy scent.

JESUS TERMINAL

Above: The main terminal is eye-catching, and spirit lifting too. Jesus’ giant marble statue greets departing passengers and bless the ones on arrival.

JESUS INCENTIVES

Below (click to enlarge): No matter what you heard about immortality, Jesus’ first concern on Earth is your Safety. That’s why each plane is equipped with an individual parachute, gps-radio and a gourmet food package in case of accident.

JESUS SAFETY

Above and below: (click and read carefully) instructions for your personal safety include a Holy Bible for an inspiring read. This way you can save your soul, too.

JESUS HOLY BIBLE

Below: The airplane’s lower fuselages is painted with a white cross. The special fluorescent coating glows in the dark, so that the Word is clearly visible at night. While churches remain empty and silent on the ground, Jesus Airlines’ Message keeps traveling above our head, promoting faith in a spectacular way all over the world.

JESUS FLIGHT

Now I’m a believer. Jesus can do wonder to all of us, and I have to thank Brandpowder for this wonderful life-changing experience.”

JESUS BOOK

Above and below: Stairway to Heaven is the airline’s label for branded content. Jesus Airlines production extends to music, books, fashion and beverages. The Marketing of Faith is the next big thing, and there’s nothing better than cool products to convey a timeless message in a contemporary, soul-catching way.

JESUS LP

Below: we would like to close this post with a sketch of Jesus Airlines’ proposed Lounge & Restaurant, signed by Serafin Maud, an architect who recently joined our Team. The airplane’s body includes Duty Free shop, Beauty Parlor, Liquor Shop and a small Chapel. The Restaurant, called Wings, makes it for a flighty, exciting lunch in midair.

Jesus is looking for partners. If you are a billionaire, and you believe in Him, please drop us a line. God bless you.

DOG GLIDING

DOG GLIDING ad

120 million people suffer from depression all over the world. According to the National Institute of Public Health, 6.7% of U.S. population over 18 experience clinical depression in many forms. What’s worse is the fact depression is contagious and not only people but also animals living in close contact with depressed people, can develop the same symptoms. Unfortunately, while 50% of people receive medical treatment, drugs or social assistance, pets are left to sort out thing on their own. It’s a shame nobody, so far, ever thought to do something about it. After all, dogs are men’s best friends the way diamonds are for girls.  That’s when the Brandpowder Team decided to get in touch with Jeremy T. Lurcher, an ethologist and canine expert from UCLA, to see whether it was possible to help our pets to regain enthusiasm and motivation out of a dog’s life. It has not been an easy task, but in the end we came up with a very simple idea: why not treating dogs like humans? After all they share the same lifestyle of their owners. The next step was to find an exciting activity and, after discarding bungee jumping, scubadiving, group sex and cocaine, we all agreed skydiving was a good point were to start from.

The static line opens the small parachute automatically and, after 5 seconds of free fall, the dog quietly glides to the ground. The outfit includes a small radio control and a GPS to monitor the dog’s location in case of distant landings.

No animals were armed throughout our activity. Skydiving is a pretty safe sport and we didn’t have a single accident in almost two years. Of course tennis table is a much safer bet, but as far as we know, dogs are not much interested in it.
