Patrick Stewart

Advertising, Brand Recognition

An amazing actor who doesn’t take himself too seriously. For a classical Shakespearean thespian, he has some chops when it comes to comedy timing.

We DVR’ed the Tut mini Series at my father’s suggestion, and very commercial break over 6 hours opened with the Strongbow Fired Commercial below:

Not the first appearance for Mr. Stewart selling Strongbow. I love the way they blow off the celebrity endorsement while still creating an incredibly funny celebrity cameo.

Not sure that 6 hours of repeated docu drama advertising was a great investment on their part. I know I watched Capt. Picard … get cut off before forwarding everytime. but I’m still not planning on trying a cider flavored malt beverage….

Stewart was also funny in this one:
