Gemma Critchley: Rockstar Treatment

Posted on May 10, 2011 by


This new ad for Virgin Holidays is brilliant. Everything about it is so well done, from that one line about everyone getting Rockstar Treatment to the super straight-faced way that the band, The Danke Schöns, play it (the rose petals/leaves bit makes me laugh every time I see this, and the ‘3 slices of bread, one for each album’ is amazing too, See for yourself:

Although, it does remind me an awful lot of the late, great Du Jour from Josie and The Pussycats:

Maybe it’s meant to? I don’t know. My brain is fried from a hard day’s advertising and so I’ll leave the ad insight and analysis to Ciaran Watkins and his blogs on advertising for the One a Day Project.

Also, if you haven’t donated to Cancer Research yet for the project, you can chuck us a quid via our Just Giving page. Go on. Be nice.
