Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Airlines are now featuring ice cubes in the shape of Sir Richard’s head for their “Upper Class” passengers.
Being among the elite few who get one of these cubes in your drink is the ultimate sign of success. Imagine sitting in Upper Class on Virgin Atlantic with a scotch in your hand. Sure to make it up the ladder maybe you did things you’re not proud of; maybe you compromised who you’d hoped you’d be in order to reach for that brass ring. Maybe that meant not spending the time you should have with your wife and your children, who are all grown and gone now. But you made it to the top and there at the bottom of your cocktail, are the glassy hollow eyes of the “Grinning Goat Man.”
