This bizarre 2022 Virgin Media advert features a highland cow riding a motorbike to the backdrop of an eighties power ballad.
This charming ad asks viewers ‘Why walk when you can ride?’ using the scene of a cow atop a Triumph Bonneville motorbike. This serves as the perfect analogy to choosing Virgin Media over other broadband products.
The advert concludes with a voice-over saying “Introducing the fastest Wi-Fi guarantee of any major provider” as the cow rides off on a mountainous road.

The soundtrack, created by Jimmy Ienner, generated two multi-platinum albums and multiple singles.
