Virgin Blue Own Space

We all love our own space in Australia. Australian airline Virgin Blue is banking on that value in this humorous promotion of the Premium Economy deal.

Dave's space invaded by Bruce in Virgin Blue ad

Dave, a businessman in his thirties, is stunned to find that the desk next to him has been occupied by Bruce, a fervent “Times New Roman” man with no sense of boundaries. Everywhere Dave goes, Bruce turns up – the lift, the car park and finally the airport. Dave’s fears of being trapped next to talkative Bruce for a whole two hour flight are somewhat relieved when he changes the middle seat into a neutral space.
