Campaign Diary: Unprepared Coleridge is perfect stiff English gent on Capital shoot

Chris Coleridge, younger brother of Conde Nast magazine supremo, Nicholas Coleridge and an account manager at Rainey Kelly/Y&R, was recently standing one morning at his local bus stop in Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill.

Chris Coleridge, younger brother of Conde Nast magazine supremo,

Nicholas Coleridge and an account manager at Rainey Kelly/Y&R, was

recently standing one morning at his local bus stop in Westbourne Grove,

Notting Hill.



Suddenly he was surprised by an energetic dancer dressed in silver

trousers practising her best moves right in front of his face. As she

girated, he turned towards her, looking, natch, a bit bemused.



Seconds later a young man ran out to Coleridge, grinned and

congratulated him: ’You were brilliant - just what we were looking for’,

and explained that he had been secretly filming a millennium-themed

Capital FM ad for Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO.



Coleridge promptly signed the disclaimer and jumped on his bus bound for

Camden.



He later groaned: ’I wish I’d been quick enough to ask for some money -

but it was eight in the morning.’
