Dubai Presents 1

Dubai appears as an uber-glamorous backdrop in this series of ads aiming to promote the many sides of tourism in the country. All aspects of Dubai’s charms are shown in the films, which use different movie genres to emphasise the various opportunities and adventures it offers.

Created by Mother London and shot by movie director Craig Gillespie, the Hollywood factor is ramped up by the addition of stars Jessica Alba and Zac Efron, who appear as bickering spies in one film and star-crossed lovers in another. The films are stylish and humorous, enticing viewers to an online hub where they could find out more about tourism in Dubai.
