Virgin Trains to(i)let Will Ferrell loo-se with onboard toilet announcements

Virgin Trains’ passengers may be accustomed to advice not to flush their ex’s sweater, hopes, dreams or goldfish down the toilet, but when they pop to the on-board loo this festive season, they could be greeted with advice from an unexpected A-lister.

To celebrate the release of new Christmas comedy, Daddy’s Home 2, on the 22nd November, Virgin Trains on the West Coast has collaborated with Hollywood funnyman Will Ferrell to treat its passengers to some real toilet humour.

Ferrell will be on hand on selected Pendolino trains across the route to remind passengers to press the lock button of the toilet door to avoid the dreaded ‘slow reveal’, and encourage them to make the most of their journey by downloading Virgin Trains’ entertainment app, BEAM, which offers hundreds of hours of movies, TV, boxsets, magazines and games.

To coincide with the release of Daddy’s Home 2 in cinemas on November 22, customers travelling with Virgin Trains on the West Coast throughout November and December can watch Daddy’s Home, the original family comedy starring Will Farrell and Mark Wahlberg, completely free on BEAM.

Adrian Varma, Head of Commercial Partnerships at Virgin Trains on the West Coast, said: “We’re really excited to be working with Will Ferrell on Daddy’s Home 2, and to be playing the hilarious Daddy’s Home on BEAM throughout the festive period. Christmas is a busy time of year as our passengers tackle their Christmas shopping and travel home to enjoy the break with family and loved ones. We hope Will’s messages will help spread a little festive cheer to everyone travelling with Virgin Trains this Christmas.”

Will Ferrell’s on-board toilet announcements will be playing on selected Pendolino trains from 16thNovember to 31st December 2017. Daddy’s Home is showing on BEAM from November 1 until December 31, 2017. Daddy’s Home 2 is released nationwide by Paramount Pictures on Wednesday November 22, 2017.
