Sir Richard Branson — or is it? Virgin Atlantic has
launched a Branson look-a-like competition to provide
a decoy  in the event of an assassination attempt

The competition, which runs through this Facebook page is giving one lucky Branson look-a-like the chance to attend Virgin Atlantic’s exclusive 25th birthday party in New York later this year.

Virgin Atlantic president Sir Richard Branson announced the competition in London before embarking on an eight-day round the world mission, which included Friday’s (Feb 27) V Australia launch flight between Sydney and Los Angeles.

“We’re setting off on a quest to see double for the next few days as part of Virgin Atlantic’s 25th birthday,” Branson said.

“Like all of my expeditions this is totally unique and, for the first time, it’s possible to fly around the world in Virgin-only aircraft. So what better way to search for the best look-a-like in the world.”

The best look-a-like of the competition will win two Virgin Atlantic return tickets to LA in premium rconomy and VIP tickets to Virgin Atlantic’s 25th birthday party in New York.
