I can imagine it now:

Virgin: "Hello, we'd like to sponsor a challenge, so we can get some great ideas for a new campaign - a bit of viral marketing, that sort of thing."
Rob: "You realise it will be a tirade of abuse, against Virgin as a company, and Sir Richard as an individual don't you? With badly drawn cocks, bad taste humour, and very possibly penguins raping the Soham murder victims?"
Virgin: "Haha! Yeah, whatever. You crazy internets! Let's ROCK!"
Rob: "Erm, OK, if you insist".

Ten minutes later...

Virgin: "Holy Mother of God, have you seen this?"
