A thread inspired by a post from F1 Fanatic Live this morning – F1 people in TV adverts.
Sometimes they’re funny, some they’re weird, sometimes they’re bafflingly pretentious. Let’s see what we can turn up.
To get started here’s Fernando Alonso wrestling a horse in an attempt to flog watches, which was posted on F1 Fanatic Live this morning (sorry, I forgot who by!):
(NB. To post a video simply copy the link to it into your post. This should work for most major video sharing sites including YouTube and DailyMotion. Please post no more than one video per reply.)
I loved the one from 2007 where Alonso and Hamilton were competitive, and Hakkinen popped up, though I can’t remember where t find it.
Head and Shoulders also have the employ of the last two world champions
You mean this one?
Also, this one:
Enigma- yes, the one with Hamilton and alonso that you posted
Because I love the terrible, almost racist attempt at a Spanish accent, and how completely unnecessary it is. Why squander a celebrity endorsement by removing their voice?!
I almost enjoy it even more than…
“wow, it’s bracing”
Häkkinen is brilliant!!!!!!
Mercedes advertising team is class.
Ok how about some of those old adverts. Plenty of Jackie Stewart ones out there….
and this one…..
but my favourite ones, and if you see the out-takes too are the Murray Walker and Damon Hill Pizza Hut adverts.
How about the real charismatic character of Nigel Mansell…. After F1 and into CART.
and the IRL getting in on the action, taking the mickey out of itself with Michael Andretti.
