Kylie Minogue Teases New Qantas Commercial Reviving the ‘I Still Call Australia Home’ Ads From the ’90s

Australian pop superstar Kylie Minogue hinted on Tuesday morning that she’s set to star in a new commercial for Qantas featuring the airline’s much loved ‘I still call Australia home’ soundtrack.

Kylie took to Instagram to share a short video of herself in a coffee coloured button-up blouse humming along to the song which was first written and performed by Peter Allen in 1980.

The ex-Neighbours star captioned her post with a musical note emoji and one word: #Qantas.

I still call Australia home has been used in a number of Qantas commercials since the 1990s and also features in the latest Qantas safety video.  In one 2009 commercial, Qantas replaced the entire first verse with a version sung in Kala Lagaw Ya, which is a dialect of the Torres Strait Islands.

In the midst of the pandemic, Qantas yet again used the song with a version sung by The Australian Girls Choir and The Gondwana National Choir released on its social media channels.

At the time, Australia had slammed its borders shut and Qantas was largely grounded but now international travel demand is roaring back and Qantas is planning a big network expansion over the coming months.

Kylie moved back to her hometown of Melbourne last year after spending many years in London. The starlet revealed she wanted to be closer to her family, especially her elderly parents.
