No one knew the impact that COVID-19 and its ensuing events would have on society, prompting Hotels.com to use its latest ad spot to fantasize a world which was warned of 2020, before it happened.
Humorously titled '2019 BC,' this 30-second ad spot lightheartedly references the wild and unexpected events that have been experienced this year. In the ad, Captain Obvious, a longtime spokesperson of the brand, is visited by his older self, who has arrived after experiencing 2020. He claims “I’m you from the future, here to warn you about 2020,” and proceeds to explain what's to come.
The ad closes with the time traveler warning his younger self to use Hotels.com's free cancellation, as you never know what might happen.
