Picture the scene…
A hungover young man is walking down the road, looking a bit scruffy and feeling a bit rough.
A stranger comes running up to him and asks: “Would you like to appear in our advert? We’ll pay you!”
They pick him up in a limo, drive him to the location, shoot all day and all night, then return him to his home in the limo and pay him £x,xxx.
It happened to the son of my dance teacher.
You can admire his performance in the Argos ad where all the guys rush to a petrol station to buy gifts at 23.59 on Christmas Eve. He’s the one you glimpse holding a pair of sunglasses.
Ironically, it’s his brother who’s drama-trained and dreaming of telly stardom.
