Nice production values. But weak idea overall.

agreed, great storytelling, adds to the Virgin mystic - but is it a bit sexist in parts?

Fun story, nice soundtrack and a great line: "Are you mental?"

"He is here to service you - every last one of you" -

Funny how each one of us, get attached to a different aspect of this ad.
I wonder, how are you going to pull this off, Sir?

cool ad.

I love watching the different things Branson does and the risks he's willing to take. I'd bet that more of that backstory is true than we might realize. I laughed through the whole thing, which I thought detracted from the ad itself. Still - I'd say it roused interest in the Virgin brand, which I think is always his end goal.
