Diary: Old tune for Virgin Media

Diary notes the much-anticipated Virgin Media ad by DDB UK is missing something.

Namely, the singer Mike Skinner's mockney monotone voice. A song by Skinner's The Streets was strongly rumoured to be the soundtrack to the ad, but it seems Virgin Media has settled on using reworked lyrics from Our House by Madness instead. Not the most original choice, Our House featured in the Birds Eye ads starring the Madness lead singer, Suggs, as well as a Maxwell House spot a few years back.
