Yup, airodyssey.net had to add the latest Virgin Atlantic commercial. Quite frankly, when I first saw it, I thought it was too much. The former cinema student in me didn’t know where to focus. The flight attendants’ legs? The shrimp on the forks? The lips? The cloud blanket? The music (“Feeling Good” interpreted by Muse)? The final “Is that Linda?” An article in The Guardian about the Virgin ad says it cost 6 million pounds (about 10 million US$) and was meant to be like a James Bond movie. The airline even calls it “surreal”.
If Virgin wants to show one more time that they’re “no ordinary airline” (like an old ad campaign said), mission accomplished 😉
