Virgin Atlantic passengers handed free Windows tablets

Gadgets, Tablet

Isn’t it funny how Santa always gives the most expensive presents to the richest kids? Don’t be fooled, the red is misleading – Santa Claus is essentially an ultra right-wing avatar promoting Randian individualism.

Which is perhaps why it was no surprise to see the big man himself turn up on an expensive transatlantic Virgin flight to hand out free Windows tables to the passengers in first class.

The stunt also saw a projection on to the roof of the plane – as you can see in the video above. At least the Santa didn’t turn out to be Richard Branson.

We’re presuming the next stop on the tour is free tablets for a group of food bank users. Don’t let us down, guys.
