96 Virgins (stewardesses)

I saw this advert for Virgin airlines on TV. The essence of it was that their stewardesses are hotter than BA's, so they had a whole bunch of stunning women dressed up in porno versions of stewardess uniforms with red spike heels marching through Gatwick to the soundtrack of Frankie Goes to Hollywood's Relax. It made me want to cut up my BA Executive Club card immediately and sell my possessions to get a Virgin ticket, which was, I imagine, its intended purpose. I'm surprised you're allowed to advertise services on the basis of the hotness of your staff, but fair enough. I've already got some ideas for Sainsbury's and Marks & Spencer.

In the future, everyone will be famous to fifteen people.

It's nothing new though - that used to be pretty much the entire basis for singapore Airlines' advertising.
