Years after dominating the pop charts with their romantic perennials, Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock of Air Supply are still making fans of all species fall in love. Released on the eve of Thanksgiving, Disney’s new movie “Old Dogs” with a star-studded cast including John Travolta, Robin Williams, Matt Dillon and Seth Green, features a trailer (movie-speak for TV commercial to promote a film) with Air Supply’s 80’s hit “I’m All Out Of Love” as the punch line. The commercial has become a favorite online as well as on the TV talk show circuit where the clip has been previewed by such closeted Air Supply fans as Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel.
The attention-grabbing scene in the commercial is set in a zoo where Travolta, Williams and Green inadvertently end up inside a guerilla enclosure where Green is unable to escape. Despite the dreaded outcome, he unexpectedly sings a lullaby to the creature with the timeless classic “I’m All Out of Love” to save himself from being harmed. Green carries on belting out lyrics to calm the beguiling creature, creating a hysterical moment for audiences.
