A kick up the eighties

I won't tell you what I was doing when the stewardess told me "Just hold this over your nose and mouth, and breath normally," but I was very young, and I did pass out. Thus with excellent timing after our first credit crunch Christmas, when you expect a bland avalanche of travel advertising, does this top notch spot of time travel from Virgin Atlantic burst onto the screen.
It certainly cheered me up - a non-PC reminder of how Branson Airlines cheekily challenged British Airways. This reminds us of how we cheered the funderdog, which is just the right message for a time when the public is learning to distrust its institutions. I love it.

That is how it should be done.

But now that you've opened the mystery just a crack, it's time to tell us why you passed out.
