Video startup Virool has significant reworked its contest in the wake of the crash of Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo in October.

Instead of offering a trip to space, Virool will send a marketing team on a trip aboard Zero-Gravity Corporation’s parabolic aircraft.

“For one full day, you and your entire video marketing team will experience weightlessness on the same aircraft that NASA uses. Between 24,000 and 35,000 feet above the ground, you’ll float, flip, soar and even EAT as if you were in outer space,” the company says on its website.

Ad Week reports the company will hold onto its Virgin Galactic ticket for use when the company begins commercial flights.
