My friends Lord Bargain (whose first book- 101 Forgotten Pop Hits of the 1980s – is now on sale) and his lovely wife Suburban Hen (whose beautiful baby quilts, jewelry, prints, and more can be found here) have entered a contest. The object is to create a video ad for Paddy Power. The video that gets the most hits wins £1,000. Like the rest of us, they could really use the money, and the ad is only 32 seconds long. It spoofs a recent event during the British elections when an incumbent candidate who had been soliciting a woman’s vote forgot that his mike was still on when he got in his car to leave. You’ll have to watch the video to find out what the candidate said!
BTW, it’s Lord Bargain himself playing the politician, and SwissToni as the Paddy Power employee.
(and in case any of you are wondering: Yes, I would probably do the same thing for you if you needed/wanted a plug 🙂 )
