Stepping out in style… making a statement…

Nor would you walk past these bus stops without at least chuckling to yourself, would you…

What's that? A bunch of currencies you see...
What’s that? A bunch of currencies you see…

But would you go THIS far in your marketing? A guerrilla campaign for good measure, in the London tube system:

"Nothing to hide", indeed!
“Nothing to hide”, indeed!

Branson & co engineering yet another lesson in how to break out in force, even in the toughest industries known to man.

It doesn’t always work, granted, but if you’re not brave enough to try, you’ll never now.

Munch on that.
