Commercial Break: Blockbusting ad for Van Compare
If you were going to make an advert about van insurance comparison, who would be the one rock act that would spring to mind to rope in and do the job? Van Halen? Hmm, maybe, but a bit expensive. Van Morrison? Again, a possibility but he’s a notoriously moody bastard.
How about mid-1970s fly-by-night superstars The Sweet? Er, okay then. Unfortunately, their singer and focal point Brian Connolly is long since dead so the star of the ad will have to be guitarist Andy Scott. Works for us.
Turns out that the owner of Van Compare is a HUGE Sweet fan – in case you were wondering. Cos you were weren’t you?
