Virgin Mobile "Sleigh," "Snowflakes"

Published on .

A glorious pile of holiday weirdness arrived in these spots for Virgin Mobile, which play up the pay-as-you-go service available to everyone!-via the everyman holiday celebration of Chrismahanukwanzah. The spot harmoniously gathers together in a faux-snowland set a pipe-smoking gramps type, a pair of Hasidic Jews , a caveman and a hobbly Tiny Tim clone, crooning together a catchy tune. The joyfully absurd lyrics push it nicely over the top: "It's OK if you're a Muslim, a Christian or a Jew. It's OK if you're agnostic and you don't know what to do. An all-inclusive celebration, no contractual obligation. Happy Chrismhanukwanzakah to you -and pagans too!"
