Virgin Mobile Saves Christmas, Cures Teenage Angst

Reginald Pike's Perlorian Brothers help teens in need of some holiday cheer in two new spots for Virgin Mobile from Lowe Roche in Toronto. Christmas morning proves to be disappointing when kids get boring gifts, and their calls for help (or frantic hyperventilation, whichever you prefer) are answered by Virgin Mobile ambassadors who come to their rescue, prompting the tag, "It's a Virgin Mobile miracle." With such lo-fi effects that the word seems exaggerated, the campy spots lay ground for the mobile company's holiday push, which in the states will include a sequel to last year's "Chrismahanukwanzakah" campaign.
