Virgin Media today unveiled its new advertising campaign, ‘A More Exciting Place to Live’. Celebrating families, couples, professionals and friends making the most of the digital world, the ad makes its first TV appearance during primetime ITV1 shows Primeval and Take Me Out, on Saturday 5th February.
Created by DDB UK, the ad features lyrics from the Madness anthem ‘Our House’. Giving us a glimpse into every room in the home, we see people listening to music, watching films, staying in touch, learning, sharing and living in the digital world.
Richard Larcombe, advertising and sponsorship director at Virgin Media, said: “Our new campaign celebrates the integral role technology plays as part of life today. People are using more services, devices and gadgets more of the time and Virgin Media is helping families lead a limitless digital life. We’re enabling the next generation of digital entertainment and putting our brilliant services at the heart of UK homes. With superfast broadband, next generation TV and innovative mobile services, a Virgin Media world is a more exciting place to live."
Virgin Media recently launched 100Mb broadband, the UK’s fastest broadband, and its next generation digital entertainment platform, Virgin Media TV powered by TiVo, bringing together the best of TV, online and on demand.
