Commercial Break: Who really is Nigel Havers?
Today sees the birthday of that old smoothie himself, Nigel Havers, as he oozes into the start of his 59th year on Mother Earth.
As a tribute, here’s a 1980s ad for a then-TSB-less Lloyds Bank, starring oily Havers and lovely lady Jan ‘Phwooaar’ Francis. But what is Nige’s role here?
Is he a stalker? After all, he seems to know that the lovely lady used Lloyds Bank when she bought his house off of him. How does he know that? Why should he care?
Is he a simpleton? After all, he doesn’t know how a debit card works. The tit!
Is he a mugger? After all, he’s hanging around the lovely lady as she uses the cash machine. The creepy prick!
No, as he proves with the ad’s punchline, he’s none of those things. He’s actually a smug twat, a role that Havers has perfected over the years. Happy birthday you crispy greaseball!
