It’s official. Virgin Red is here.

The rewards club from the Virgin Group has officially opened its doors to everyone in the UK and it’s celebrating with the launch of its new multimedia campaign, centred around a TV commercial, called Whatever blows your bubble. The story, set to a re-record of the 1980s classic 99 Red Balloons, is a jubilant tale of something small becoming something amazing, as an analogy of how Virgin Red gives people a way to turn their everyday purchases into extraordinary rewards.

Tapping into Virgin’s music heritage and the trend for all things 1980s, the uplifting re-record of 99 Red Balloons marks the first time this well-loved song has been recreated for a commercial campaign. The team worked with talenthouse producers JOLT, a 36-piece orchestra in Berlin and outstanding vocalist Grace Carter to pay homage to this iconic track.
