Thread: New Virgin Media TV Advert with no VVD?

  1. #1

    Default New Virgin Media TV Advert with no VVD?

    Just seen the new Virgin Media Advert on the TV, featuring Steven Davies, Fraser Forster, Manolo Gabbiadini, Oriol Romeu, and James Ward Prowse leading out the team in the new kit at the end:





    Cue the conspiracy theories about VVD not leading out the team in the advert - as wasn't he supposed to be the team captain, and Steven Davies the club captain? Obviously if there was any chance of him leaving, no wonder he is not in the advert......

    He's probably busy with the physio.

    Perhaps it's because he wasn't in the team that day. Clearly faked.

    If I remember rightly, when this was filmed back in May, he was in Dubai.

    Good advert. Thought it was well done.

    He's on the coach staring broodingly out of the window.

    He was undergoing his audition for a Nivea advert.

    Those 'Arry lookalikes must do a brisk trade - between Virgin ads, Crimewatch reconstructions and playing crooked coppers and authority-figures in Brit flicks.

    This thread should be about how good it is to see Saints getting high profile in a TV Ad. Definitely a step up in the club's sponsorship with a good return through publicity. It is completely wrong to mention VVD in the title of the thread as it has nothing to do with a player who wasn't in any games for nearly half the season due to injury. Mods should consider changing the title.

    Very true
    One of the biggest cable TV companies in the country sticking us front and centre of their campaign, only those wanting a soft face get as much prime time advertising.

    Exactly it's fantastic to see us in this way. Our profile is rising.

    Absolutely - and this will have been part of VM's pitch to us in the first place, in trying to create more of a "partnership" style relationship. Much better than most clubs approach of just taking money from the highest paying online gambling site.
