    Virgin America has created a 5 hours and 46 minutes-long commercial, designed to highlight how boring flying from Newark to San Francisco is on domestic flights that don’t have in-flight entertainment. “Mind-numbingly uneventful, the advert is also quite Kubrikian and unsettling, featuring lingering shots of bleary-eyed mannequins and circular whispered conversations.” Can you improve on it? Can you make it even more boring? Create that commercial. Upload your video to YouTube with the tags dailycreate and tdc1097 (YouTube seems to work best if you also include tdc1097 in the video title) [tubepress mode=”tag” tagValue=”tdc1097″ playerLocation=”shadowbox” orderBy=”published” showRelated=”false” ajaxPagination=”false” resultsPerPage=”28″ author=”true” videoBlacklist=”UKY3scPIMd8″]
