Okay, travelers. Put on your dancing shoes because supermodel Coco Rocha has just introduced a little dance we're going to call the Airside Slide. Earlier today, Coco announced the airing of the video accompanying her work on the Spring/Summer 2013 campaign for french luxury fashion house Longchamp, and it's in this video that she and another model (Liisa Winkler) boogie down under the roof of the old Eero Saarinen-designed TWA Terminal at JFK Airport.
The premise is simple: Coco's running to catch a flight. She passes through security but keeps beeping. The TSA agent steps out to frisk her, at which point the music starts Coco spontaneously dancing, joined in the moves by Liisa.
We hinted this video would be coming, as photos from the making have been floating around since early January, but it's nice to see such a polished result that could possibly, by a very brave person, be turned into reality.
There's much to be said for the appeal of the short; it's bright and happy with retro appeal and an addictive beat. Even this music would be played in JetBlue's part of Terminal 5, since they are not shy about playing the hits (we think The Village People were blaring on our last visit?).
Now for a bit of fun: can you spot the few inaccuracies? We're not going to spoil them all, but for sure the "TSA agent" would have made the model on the left take off that leather jacket...
