  • "An email from Maureen. It says 'John, sweet honey-bunch, what is on your plate on that advert for pension plans? It looks suspiciously like a bacon rasher to me. If so, I'm perplexed and deeply disappointed.' I can assure you that it isn't actually. All that was on the plate, and I do know this because I sat and looked at it for an entire day, were beans and a piece of fried bread and a poached egg, I mean they were renewed fairly regularly, and the most important feature on there were vegetarian sausages. In the course of the filming of this particular advert, I ate eighteen vegetarian sausages... and set new European levels for flatulence for about a week after that. It was an unpleasant experience, but sometimes when you sell your soul like that, you pay a price." The TV commercial in question was an Equitable Life Advert.
