Branson-shaped ice cube anyone?

2012-05-02 10:08
If you're flying first class with Virgin sometime this month, you might be lucky enough to have a "Little Richard" cooling your drink.

The Telegraph reports that ice cubes sporting Richard Branson's face will be served on selected flight routes throughout the month to celebrate the airline's new in-flight bar.

They report that "The ice cubes have been built to scale, using the exact measurements of Sir Richard's actual head, and boast an impressive attention to detail - even the Virgin boss's trademark goatee is distinguishable."

A spokesman for Virgin said the creation meant "all passengers will be able to enjoy some chill out time with Mr Branson". He added that the bar would feature additional innovations, including "enhanced mood lighting".
