Usain Bolt featured in “I am Richard Branson” Virgin Media Commercial

There are loads of broadband companies out there, which is why things like Usave exist to help you find the best broadband deals out there. Obviously, the main broadband provider is Virgin Media who offer various Internet plans across the UK and USA. Virgin Media UK has kicked off a brand new media campaign and the man at the forefront of the blitz is no other than Richard Branson… no, wait a minute Usain Bolt? It is Usain Bolt! It’s hilarious in a quirky kind of way and we’re loving it. I just hope the Virgin Media customers (and potential customers) in the United Kingdom love it too! I wonder if you can find any of the deals on or similar sites… Back on track, however, what’s there not to love, their broadband speed will be doubled starting next month! That’s something for many people to consider when looking at viasat internet plans or any other on the market. Full commercial embedded below:

Hi, I am Richard Branson and I am doubling everyone’s Broadband speed

I was taking the balloon for a ride the other day and got thinking: ‘These days, everyone’s doing more and more online. We all tweet, shop, play, video-chat, even watch HD movies.’

Then it hit me. ‘My customers already have the UK’s fastest broadband, but they’d get a lot more enjoyment out of it if I doubled their speeds.’

So that’s what I’m going to do for over 4 million Virgin Broadband customers. Because I can.
