Virgin America Pokes Fun At Long Tedious Flights With New Ad Campaign

Virgin-America1

(PCM) Nearly all of us at one point or another have had to deal with a long and tedious flight, especially one that is headed cross-country. You are dealing with issues such as screaming children, lack of food, zero leg room and of course obnoxious seatmates.

Virgin America has decided to poke a little fun, as well as, make a statement about just how long and boring cross-country travel can become with their new ad campaign. The campaign also reminds individuals that there is indeed a better way to fly!

The new ad campaign features an over five hour long video that shows us the pains associated with flying cross-country on the humorusly titled “BLAH Airlines” through the eyes of a mannequin who is stuck on the flight.

Adweek recently featured the campaign and obviously the mannequins represent actual passengers who are often time forced to suffer on these long and grueling flights. The point of the lengthy ad is to bore individuals into flying with Virgin America to avoid the “BLAH Airlines”.

According to Virgin themselves, “Just trying to watch the video is downright painful—and that’s the point. If you wouldn’t sit through the entire film, why would you pay money to experience it in real life?” We can’t see anyone actually sitting down to watch the entire five hour and forty-six minute ad. If you would like to give it a shot, the entire five plus hour ad can be viewed below:

First Lady Michelle Obama’s Turnip Video Goes Viral

(PCM) A brief Vine video posted from The White House account of First Lady Michelle Obama dancing with a turnip has gone viral.

The silly video clip was posted by the First Lady as a response to a query from Barack Obama impersonator Iman Crosson, who posted a Vine asking Michelle Obama “how many calories do you burn every time you ‘turn up’?

The Vine was posted during a White House Q&A session with the First Lady. As we all know Mrs. Obama is a strong advocate for healthy eating habits, especially when it comes to children.

She was quick to post a reply that featured her dancing with a turnip to a clip of the hit DJ Snake and Lil Jon song “Turn Down For What” … it was absolutely hilarious!

Alaskan TV Reporter Quits Live On The Air To Campaign For Legalized Marijuana

Charlo-Greene1

(PCM) The video which shows Alaskan TV reporter Charlo Greene resigning from her position at the Anchorage CBS-affiliate KTVA Channel 11 in quite the colorful way has gone viral.

Greene was reporting on a story about the legalization of marijuana in Alaska when she made a very surprise move by revealing her involvement with a cannabis club (she’s the owner) and her passion about decriminalizing pot in the state.

After revealing her involvement with the cannabis club, she said “Well, not that I have a choice, but f**k it, I quit”. It was quite apparent that the sudden resignation live on the air was surprise, as the look on the other reporters face behind the news desk was priceless.

The news director for KTVA, Burt Rudman, posted the following apology on the network’s Facebook page:

“Dear Viewers,

We sincerely apologize for the inappropriate language used by a KTVA reporter during her live presentation on the air Sept. 21. The employee is terminated.

Bert Rudman
News Director – KTVA 11 News”

Green claims the reason behind her sudden departure was to redirect all of her energy toward helping put an end to a failing drug policy that has ruined the lives of far too many Americans and claims that she quit in such a fashion as a way to draw more attention to the issue.
