So it has been revealed that former RadioLIVE host Paul Henry is the new face for Snickers in New Zealand. Elsewhere in the world the ads feature Joan Collins, Betty White and Joe Pesci, with each portraying a particular character trait.
In the Kiwi ads, Paul's trait is "mean", which could work some way towards me getting my wish. Bear with me here...
You see, where I come from the Snickers ads were once fronted by 80s TV hero Mr. T.
In a variety of scenarios, the top of a tank would flip open and the former nightclub bouncer would scream at some unsuspecting subject "GET SOME NUTS!", before trying to run them over with his tank. Now that's "mean"!
When I learned of Paul's involvement in the new Snickers ads here, only one thing came to my mind... What d'ya say Snickers? Can we? Oh, can we?
