The ad which women do night find funny showed a man with with his left over a woman's face and another holding box, asked "Necklace or Cholorform?" for a holiday question on December 8.
"Virgin Mobile US usually get these things right, although on this occasion it is clear they have gone too far," wrote Richard Branson who also later noted that an external agency created the ad, and the advertising along with the entire calendar was removed.
The cloroform ad was pulled briefly and replaced with and ad showing Santa with his thumb up and the caption "Sees you when you're sleeping.--- Ladies."
We find interesting that Branson found that ad offensive while the television for Virgin Mobile shows him leaving the bed of a girl showing how fast he was. He was getting people what they wanted as fast as possible noted the voice-over. Sexism was already in the air, some might say.
