Commercial Break: Oh Jarvis, what hath thy done?

If you’re a child of the Britpop generation, chances are that you see Jarvis Cocker as a bit of a hero. Always the outsider, casting a cynical eye over the minutiae of modern life, making a scathing point while making you laugh. Or some such nonsense.

Here’s Jarvis in 2011, trousering a wad of Eurostar cash in an Olympics-themed ad that is more like one of Christoper Biggins’ acid-soaked dreams than anything that might actually resemble a sporting event. See how long you can keep your bile still while Jarvis mentions ‘a totally bad boy beat’.

Beyond awful.

    Seriously? Have you never seen this before? Presumably it would also be a shock ( I lol'd as the kids say) when I found out that he was Eurostar's "Cultural Ambassador".

    Have you never seen a Michel Gondry film or music video before, Andy? Fucking hell. Wake up man. This is tame.

    Christoper Biggins’ acid-soaked dreams - A TV show I would watch religiously.
