Many brands have benefited by advertising within 3am, however the benefits of striking a deeper relationship can be demonstarted by viewing a case study of previous partener Virgin Mobile.

Who's used it in the past?

Virgin Mobile has a typical challenger brand approach to their above the line activity. The brand is quirky, fun, young and irreverent.
