Richard Branson Does a Strip 'Teese' at McCarran
As our brother site, Jaunted, knows very well, whenever Richard Branson does something, he does it big. So it's no surprise that to celebrate 10 Years of Virgin Atlantic service to and from London and Vegas, Branson grabbed Dita Von Teese and stood on the wing of a VA plane at McCarran airport yesterday.*
But this wasn't any old plane. VA marked their 10th anniversary by unveiling a one-off Las Vegas-inspired flying lady on its aircraft, and yes, that lady looks remarkably similar to Ms. Von Teese.
VA started flying to Vegas in June 2000 and remember, there will be even more Brits on the Strip next when VA begins direct flights from Manchester Airport to Vegas. So we will expect more hen and stag parties but can Posh organize a WAG convention here too? Thxvmuch!
*We also hear that Branson did a stunt at the Bellagio fountains this morning, fake-dropping a Fox anchor into the water and almost providing early morning viewers with an upskirt shot. Cheeky monkey!
