Virgin Atlantic 25th anniversary ad

This is an utterly awesome ad – well done to however did it. My only question is the same as Chris Reed's: why on Earth haven't the agency involved created an official embedded version?

    No way! Brilliant!

    Only one problem with this addvert and that is, the fact that In June 1984 mobile phones were not invented so the guy in the advert must be from the future.
    And if you doubt my claims then i can tell you the first mobile network launched on the 31st December 1984 by vodafone and the first ever consumer call on that network was on the 1st January 1985
    Just thought id point out that Virgin obviously didn’t do much research when making this ad. :)

    I suspect that the agency have gone for a “Life on Mars” / “Ashes to Ashes” style – so it’s not intended to be totally true to life

    Hi all
    Just out of interest, the WIMPY logo in the background is from the South African WIMPY http://www.wimpy.co.za so I would assume that as per many other british adds this add is filmed in SA.
    Thanks

    I think it’s actually the same as the UK Wimpy (which does still exist!)

    I'm not young and I think this advert is absolutely terrific. What is wrong in seeing beautiful young women dressed so smartly with beautiful high heels and accompanied by a very handsome pilot. Whoever started these comments about sexism should get a life for goodness sake. This ad hasn't been played for a little while so come on Virgin Atlantic lets see it some more.

    Virgin Atlantic are doing a competition to remake this ad! If your version of the ad gets voted the best you get to fly on a re-creation of the inaugural flight, to go the 25th birthday party in Manhattan and get a night's luxury accomodation.

    They've not given you long, only about 12 days, so check out http://www.virgin-atlantic.com/en/gb/redhotrema… for all the details.

    can anyone please tell me the name of the actress seen in the book shop who looks over her sunglasses at the pilot as he walks by
    thanks
