Richard Branson is the owner of Virgin.
He was seen at an entrepreneurs expo and he had Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates with him. He was not a welcome sight to Lisa, who wanted to use an example to persuade Nelson to finish his higher education. Branson has became successful while never finishing his higher education, therefore he would be a poor example in this context.
Branson had a bigger role In The Princess Guide, where he was shown to be Mr. Burns' neighbor. In a relationship similar to Ned Flanders and Homer Simpson, Branson would greet Burns by saying "Hey-Dibbley-Do, neighboroonie!", to which Burns would say "Stupid Branson". At the end of the episode, Branson asks Burns if he can do some charity since his luck is bad, much to Burns' irritation as he attempts to slam the door in front of Branson. He eventually gave Burns a dollar bill after he slammed the door onto Branson's foot. Burns then asks where are his hounds when he needs them (hinting that he could've released the hounds on Branson), but Branson answers that they're on the Virgin Galactic flight around the world. Having had enough of Branson's maniacs, Burns asks him if he can go 5 minutes without saying the word "virgin", but Branson says, "That's another Virgin challenge. That I won't be virgin taking."
