…Boing Boing got Virgin America to chase unicorns?

Unicorn Chaser

When Virgin America needed names for their planes, they opened up a contest to see who could come up with the best ones. Somehow, Boing Boing managed to convince them that the name ‘Unicorn Chaser’ was both awesome and acceptable, and they agreed.

    “The idea of Unicorn Chaser first popped up on Boing Boing to serve as a cleansing of the palate after a viewer has been subjected to a distasteful internet image or experience” said Xeni Jardin, a tech culture journalist and co-editor of Boing Boing. “Nothing takes away the sting of a jarring experience better than an image of a nice unicorn prancing in the meadow.”

Though they no longer have the unequal opportunity European stewardesses to keep you entertained, at least you can tell your friends that you flew the friendly skies in a Unicorn Chaser.
