Virgin America's nearly six-hour-long commercial about flying is absolutely brilliantBy Shawn Knight 8 comments
Frequent fliers will no doubt relate to at least some of Virgin America's latest commercial. I use the word "some" because the "commercial" is nearly six hours long and filled with virtually ever boring, strange and annoying situation you could ever experience during a flight... and then some.
While I didn't have the time to watch the entire clip, I did skip around and found the annoying guy whistling "Row Row Row Your Boat" non-stop, several strange background conversations, instructions on how to play "Rock, Paper, Scissors" from a bimbo flight attendant and a dream sequence involving large bubbles, a dog catching a Frisbee and a coin flipping through the air.
Sure, it's over-the-top silly but you have to admit, it's absolutely brilliant marketing.
