There’s a hint of Mad Men chic about this Virgin Trains TV ad, inviting passengers to sit back, relax and let their fantasies take flight next time they choose to “Fly Virgin Trains”. The song is Dean Martin’s take on Volare (which, fittingly, means “to fly”). For trivia fans, the opening shots of this ad were filmed at Glasgow Central Station, and the aerial shots were filmed by former kids’ TV presenter Mike Smith. Volare is available to download from iTunes.

    Dean Martin continues to reach out to us with his velvet smoooooth voice. He truely was one of a kind. A great all round entertainer who conquered film , television , radio, records and cabaret. He was even a pretty good golf player !!

    this ad grates on my nerves, I find myself rushing to turn it off whenever i catch a hint of Dean Martin coming on my screen…I get that its meant to get us to follow our fantasties and get out and about but the guy fawning over the woman, then moving on after he sees she’s hapilly married just irritates me…
