The awesome Vinnie Jones stars in the most awesome CPR ad ever.


(via)
I haven't been this excited about a CPR ad since, well, since this one (for much different reasons, obvs.). The legendary football (the real game) thug (evidence), and the man who makes Guy Ritchie films more watchable strikes again for the British Heart Foundation. All I can say is: focking brillyant.
Ad agency: Grey, London.

Vinnie Jones was about the worst player ever to make it pro. He could trap a ball further than I could kick it. Still, he was a legitimate "nutter" on the field and you wouldn't want to play against him. Was much relieved that when I played against Hollywood United a couple of years back......he was on a sojourn doing UK's "Big Brother" at the time. Great spot. Also.

I was aware that he didn't have the moves of say...Drogba.

copyranter -- believe me, Betty White probably had more moves. He was a thug on the field, nothing more....nothing less. Not that there's anything wrong with that.......it's a man's game....etc...etc.

You've seen the pic of him grabbing Gaza's balls, right?

So nearly perfect.

Why the pun on 'handy' at the end.

Why?

Seriously, I wish agencies would stop ripping off the truly brilliant Super Sexy CPR viral by Fortnight Lingerie. I find this new execution just ok. I wouldn't call it brilliant.

Right on the sovereign.

Informative, too. I will always remember the Stayin' Alive tempo trick!

Cracking ad, but was "Focking Brillyant" an attempt at cockney, mr Copyranter? If it was, you'd be better off saying "Faakin' Briwwiant". I take it back if you weren't trying to speak like a cockney.

No no, a lame attempt at...more of an average Londoner accent.
