Thanks to my son for waking me (and my lovely bride) up at 3AM and not being able to fall back to sleep. I found a gem! Okay, maybe its too much of a stretch to only give my idol Richard Branson all the credit, but he and the Virgin brand sure do know a hell of a lot about creating killer video for marketing purposes. They kick ass!
This is the video to showcase their 25th anniversary. Since I’m a product of the 80’s, the use of Frankie Goes To Hollywood probably resonates with me a lot more than Generation Y or Millennials, but hey, there it is. Plus, it’s like a metaphora-palooza to mix such a sexually explicit song with a “virgin” brand… I’ve got to change my ticket too.
I don’t think Virgin spent a bundle to create this piece, but I know the video is going viral. I’m not the first to cover it.
