This brand new Virgin Media advert titled “Faster brings us closer” stars London-based rapper and musician Lava la Rue. The ad begins with the musician playing an old cassette tape of a song recorded by her dad called ‘For You’. She then uploads and posts it online with the title “My Dad Back In The Day”.
She then gets replies from listeners. One of them called Uncle B replies “Look what I’ve just found!” With a link to a video containing a live performance of the song in 1996.The young musician decides to create a mash up of the song bringing the two generations together in the form of music.
Of course she manages to do this with the help of Virgin Media’s ‘lighting-fast’ broadband.
