Commercial Break: Birthday boy Cosby gets it massively wrong

Avid reader, it’s my birthday today. As such, I wrote this last night and am now celebrating the anniversary of my arrival into this world that we laughably call ‘the world’ in a pub somewhere.

But I’m not the most talented person to have been born on July 12th – that title belongs to Bill Cosby, and by way of a tribute to the great man, here’s one of the finest moments from his long-running career in advertising.

Oh – it seems that he’s parping up for the benefits of New Coke sometime back in the mid-1980s. Maybe July 12th belongs to Andy Dawson after all…

    Happy Birthday to you, hope you choke and go blue, stick your apple up your chapel. Steve Jobsie hates you. Regards, Steve.

  • Steve J.
