It’s not often that you get admen appearing in ads – off-hand I can’t think of another example although I’m sure some exist – but here’s WPP’s Sir Martin Sorrell on duty for The Wall Street Journal, which, I presume, is a WPP client given the close ties between it and Rupert Murdoch’s empire.
And in this link there’s a pre-roll ad which shows the great man in rare silent mode.
Wonder which other WPP clients might make use of his services? HSBC – surely he’s a valued customer? Ford? I believe SMS was driven around in a modest Ford Granada back in the day. How about Marks & Spencer? SMS and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley would cut quite a dash.
