Hello again Virgin Mobile and thank you very much for the creepiest commercials ever. Seriously, Virgin’s second commercial in two years aimed directly at stealing T-Mobile customers is perhaps the oddest commercial I’ve seen in recent wireless industry history. A brain jumping on a chair is somehow appealing and makes me want to switch carriers, riiiiiight. I’m usually pretty critical of T-Mobile’s marketing but at least I don’t cringe when I watch them and Carly was far better than this…whatever this is.
Virgin’s “Retrain Your Brain” campaign is offering T-Mobile customers a $100 credit to switch to their number to Virgin’s no-contract, $35 unlimited plan.
It’s pretty simple: just choose your Virgin Mobile Beyond Talk smartphone. Transfer your existing T-Mobile number before May 31, activate your new phone and become a Virgin Mobile customer by May 31 and receive $100 credit.
If you can watch this video without laughing, cringing or stopping before it ends, I applaud you.
