First it was Tiger Savage (real name Tracey - no, not Tiger Tracey) in a
Mercury One-2-One ad. Now it’s the turn of almost the entire staff of
Butterfield Day Devito Hockney in the Mr Tom ads.
It began with production man, Dave Parsons, in the first ad as Mr Tom
Parsons of Stoke on Trent. Then the finance director, Deborah Holdgate,
got her teeth into another Mr Tom, while the latest is the copywriter,
Alex Hinge, who is dumped into a shopping trolley. Apparently, his art
director, Steve McDermott, appears in a poster - on a kebab spit with no
knickers. What about poor starving actors?
