The Ad is trying to say...

to all the trustafarians who will do their 'find myself' year out travel...it is really OK to use Dubai as your hub so get Daddy to whack a LHR-DXB-DEL on his Amex. Chris Martin (or his lookalikey) and a hippy bloke with a beard say it's OK and they've gotta be ethical....$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Why have they dropped their long-standing slogan ('Keep Discovering'), which had a certain charm and romance to it, in favour of the meaningless 'Hello Tomorrow'??

The guy you're referring to in that commercial is an actor named Edward Elks, and yes he does look like Chris Martin!
