What brings people closer together? Faster internet? Video calls? Teaming up in a video game to beat aliens? All of the above, according to this neat little ad from Virgin Media.
The video features the story of a young student playing games – and teaming up with – another student who bested him in the game. Their relationship eventually transcends the digital world and culminates in a video call where they begin to get to know the real people behind the avatars.
The comments under the video want to know one thing. What game are they playing? Did Virgin Media commission a bespoke game just for this ad? Impressive, if that’s the case.
The Virgin Media ad is really slickly produced, with some Ready Player One vibes around it.
Can you spot the location they filmed the university scenes?
