Virgin Mobile advert 2022 music – shop the drop

Virgin mobile ad music 2022

If where that whoop pipe sound in the January 2022 Virgin mobile advert with the bouncing car comes from has been bugging you, the music is from “Drop It Like It’s Hot” by Snoop Dogg featuring Pharrell Williams. The penny whistle two-tone whoop starts at 1:47 which may evoke memory of the sound of inhalation through a bong. Might make one wonder whether Virgin is targeting dealers 😄

Interesting how gangster/drug culture has become part of mainstream media advertising and of course Virgin Media as far back as 2012 used a reworking of Dan Black’s “HYPNTZ” (reworked as “Symphonies” for copyright reasons) which was itself a reworking of the lyrics from Hypnotize by The Notorious B.I.G. combined with the theme from the John Carpenter film Starman by Jack Nitzsche.
