Risque VS Commercial...UK Only?

Sat Apr 16, 2005 7:20 am

I stumbled across this twisted but hillarious Virgin Atlantic commercial. Is this only shown in the UK due to its questionable content, or is it also shown in other countries?

I have never seen it on UK terrestrial TV but quite possibly it is shown on satellite TV.

It is hilarious!

VS- just brilliant!
VS are pretty unique if you think about it, can anyone imagine what would be the reaction if BA/AF/LH did such a commercial?  Wink

Who cares if it is 2003 or 2005?

It's still funny.

That's interesting in light of the fact that human reproduction is accomplished exactly the same way here as it is in the UK.

There actually was a thread on this ad several months back...I don't think it was ever shown anywhere.

What's so questionable about its content?

Where's that turkey baster?

What a ghastly dream.

The turkey must have been off.
