Last week, lodgings rental platform Airbnb made headlines for expanding into Cuba and leading the most significant U.S. business expansion on the island since diplomatic relations were re-established between the two countries at the end of last year.

To celebrate, Airbnb and TBWA/Chiat/Day L.A. created this ad that ran in The New York Times yesterday, likening the advertiser's entry into Cuba to another significant historic milestone -- when mankind first set foot on the moon. Copy on the ad nicely incorporates the brand's feelgood m.o. and reads, "One giant leap for man's kindness."
