Virgin Mobile's Hot Box Fondling Angels Cause Complaints

virgin_mobile_wrapping_paper.JPG

As part of a promotion for its Hot Box cell phone, Virgin mobile Canada created some Christmas wrapping paper that shows angels kissing and fondling one another. Ottawa's Alan Dean wasn't too pleased when his 12 year-old daughter was handed some of the paper as part of a promotion following a screening of Harry Potter at the Famous Players Coliseum. Mr. Dean had no kind words for Virgin Mobile marketers telling the Ottawa Citizen, "Somebody had to have their head screwed on wrong to put out a promo like that at a family theater. Even though they said they wanted to hand it out to 18-year-olds, it doesn't matter. It shouldn't have been on the premises." Oddly, we agree. It's just a little sick.

Looks innocent enough for me. Mr Dean from Ottawa must be projecting his own paedophile fantasies into this artwork.

I agree. Im done with virgin mobile for this and other reasons. like not sending me a new phone that broke and is under warranty. And for lying, misleading, ignoring emails and giving me the run around when I call.
