Virgin Sues Blogger Over Fake Ad, Gives Fake Ad Massive ExposureS

Virgin is always making those cheeky ads for itself, right? But when a blogger does it in obvious parody style, Virgin sues them. Scrubs.

Virgin America is suing Adrants, one of the small handful of actually readable ad blogs, because they ran this parody Virgin ad (made by someone else!) that you see at left. They've pulled it now after Virgin sent them a huge threatening attorney's letter, but apparently the lawsuit (for defamation and other ridiculous things) is still a real threat. Of course their lawsuit has now caused the fake ad to be posted in ten times more places than it ever would have had they just left it alone.

I thought you were good at PR, Richard Branson. [Agency Spy]
