PR speaking: "Final Cut Editor Rick Russell recently teamed with Traktor on a new campaign for Virgin Atlantic to celebrate its 25 years of "Red Hot" flying courtesy of ad agency RKCR. The retro spot entitled, "Love at First Flight," takes off in 1984 London, with a hilarious reenactment of Virgin's inaugural flight." -- hilarious since it has all the 80's crud, pink ties suspenders, the Smiths, and ginoumous mobile phones plus mentions of telex? Seems like it was only yesterday, doesn't it? :)
