Hurrah for the 1%!  How lovely it must be to use your wealth to make drunk first class passengers think they’re hallucinating.  What fun!

Sir Richard Branson will soon unveil ice cubes in the shape of his head for all “upper class” customers aboard Virgin Atlantic.  “While Richard would love to be able to sit and enjoy a drink with all of our passengers, his schedule means that it simply isn’t possible,” Virgin Atlantic’s Steve Ridgway said.  “Now he is able to join our guests ‘in spirit’ on one of the upper class cabin’s first flights as they raise a toast to their trip and the exciting times ahead.”

According to ITV, four designers used exact measurements, from detailed photographic techniques and laser scanning technology, to create the mold for Branson’s cubes. 

Sorry, plebes.  These cubes aren’t for your plastic cups to enjoy.  

Despite ostracizing the 99%, some still see Branson as a solid dude.  “That guy’s awesome,” Branson fan Jonathan Goldman said of the billionaire.  “He takes pictures with naked girls on jet skis, he has his own island.  He’s just an awesome guy.”
