Commercial Break: Virgin on the... no, we're not saying it.

18 November 2009

Here’s an American ad that’s so staggeringly shite that we’re astounded that it made it out of the brain of the ‘creative’ who devised it without withering and dying. But no, it somehow crawled on to the table and eventually made it on to the screen.

It’s for Virgin Mobile, a company who many of you have angrily nominated for our Worst Company of 2009 grand voting fandango. This ad won’t endear the brand to any of you, that's for sure.

Perpetuating the obvious myth that females never shut up ever, this gym locker room scene sees a woman’s mouth detach itself from her face so that it can carry on yammering into the stupid mobile phone while its owner goes off to do some press ups (or whatever the hell people do in gyms.)

There’s no happy ending here. The mouthless woman is going to be stared and pointed at in the gym by the body fascists while the mouth will probably be shot in the face by CIA agents who storm the building after getting a tip-off about an alien invasion.

As for the phone – nothing. Well look at it – who would want to make off with THAT?

Ridiculous.

    "how does a mouth have a face????" This is bitterwallet - they don't rely on small unimportant things like facts.

    "how does a mouth have a face????" Never mind that, how can a mouth listen to what the person on the other end of the phone is saying? It seems as though Virgin also do not rely on small unimportant things like facts!
