CAMPAIGN DIARY: Sindy and Action Man find a new market for their special abilities

It made us laugh when we saw a story in the newspapers a couple of weeks ago about Channel 4 and Polygram being annoyed at Richard Branson for spoofing their Trainspotting promotional poster in his ad for Virgin West Coast Railways.

So we wonder whether the two film companies will be irritated or amused

when they see the postcards that Neon magazine is giving away this

month.



The title commissioned a special model stylist to stage scenes from

Reservoir Dogs, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, the Graduate and

Saturday Night Fever as well as a take-off of the cult movie poster.



Have you noticed the twist? All the scenes have been set up and posed

with real Sindy dolls and Action Men
