Better - a new video promoting Delta Airlines as the main sponsors of the Masters Golf Tournament - has been shot in Chile. Characters from different parts of the world work on their golfing technique, saying the word ‘Better’ in their mother-tongues after every swing. The capital city Santiago was selected as the shoot’s core production hub thanks its proximity to a plethora of distinguishable landscapes.
