Virgin’s Interpretation Of Britain In 2025

Predictions into what our society will look like in the future are always interesting to look at, like this video from Virgin which presents what they believe life in Britain will be like in the year 2025.

It’s certainly an interesting take on things, our homes, streets and countryside appear much the same, however everyone seems to be using Iron Man’s interactive supercomputer Jarvis. Even the elderly gentleman collecting eggs from the chickens in his garden to make his high-flying, executive daughter a fresh brunch is at it. Jarvis, (or a very similar device) tells him how well his meds are working and when to take a break on his stroll through town so as not to over-exert himself. Meanwhile, the exec daughter draws on inspiration from traditional looking British buildings and the countryside to perfect her virtual presentation, which she can show to her bosses from her father’s dinner table using this impressive technology.

Cabaret Star Finally Ready To Lose Virginity At The Age Of 70

Pam Shaw

Pam Shaw, also known under her stage name as The Sexational Pam, is a cabaret star who has performed alongside such legends as Tom Jones and Engelbert Humperdinck.

She was so busy pursuing her career, which consisted primarily of singing on stage, but also included acting, that she never found time for a relationship. You could call her the true career oriented woman, always putting her work success first. She’s never been married and never had kids.

She’s also never lost her virginity, because despite her sexy stage persona, Miss Shaw does not believe in sex before or outside of marriage.

“I’ve always had a very strong work ethic and finding romance always came below getting ahead in my career.” She said, “I wouldn’t have entertained the idea of sex outside of marriage, and marriage meant giving up on my dreams.”

Although Shaw is quick to point out it was not as if she didn’t have offers, she just insists that given her intensive work schedule she never really had time to get to know anyone well enough, despite the attempts of many.Continue Reading

BBC Not Happy About Who’s In The New Virgin Advert

The new Virgin advert for their on demand service TiVo has angered executives at the BBC because it features David Tennant and makes blatant references to the hit series Dr Who.

The BBC was not given any financial contribution for this not so subtle allusion and they are also unhappy about the advert because they don’t want to appear to be endorsing any outside companies.
It’s pretty easy to see why the BBC is more than a little annoyed with the advert. The references to Dr Who are pretty damn obvious after all.

The advert features Dr Who star David Tennant sitting on a couch in a futuristic looking environment, in the background we can see Virgin founder Richard Branson in a lab coat working on some electronics on a large container which is titled ‘Virgin Time Travel’. Tennant talks to the audience about the misfortune of not being able to find something you want to watch on television and how this is not a problem that you will have if you get TiVo. He uses the remote to scroll through the options and one of the shows which appear on the screen is actually Dr Who.

Meanwhile Branson gets inside the Virgin Time Travel box, some flashing lights appear and Branson is whisked away and returns as a younger version of himself – well that’s what I think they are getting at!

Executives at Virgin have tried to argue that the advert is not directly about the BBC’s flagship show, but is centered around Branson’s love of travel and exploration. Whilst it is a plausible enough explanation because Branson is renowned for having those interests – it doesn’t take away the fact that the advert really does make obvious allusions to Dr Who!
