Johnny Rotten Butter

I’m not a big fan of celebrities hawking products and services to Baby Boomers.  I’m not a big fan of using celebrities in any ads. 

There are exceptions.  Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner (not Boomers, but Boomer heroes) are professional and funny:

Maybe it’s because I’m a colonial rube – but I do like Twiggy’s spots in England (I also talk about the campaign in a recent online presentation):

Dick Stroud wants your opinions on three UK spots starring Boomer rock stars.  Two seem to me to be messed up, confusing brand babble – but Johnny Rotten always cracked me up and does so again:


Or maybe I’m a sucker for English celebrities. Or I remember how wondrous the butter was sloshed atop crumpets every morning.

Or the Rotten spot is amusing, well-done, and sells you butter.
