Egg Marketing Board: Tony Hancock (Posters)

Hancock sells out for the Egg Marketing Board and we totally buy it.

Advert 1966 1 mins


Few advertising campaigns can have their spokesman explicitly state that they have sold themselves out, and yet still have us completely buy the message. By leaning on the format and character made famous on TV and radio in Hancock’s Half Hour, including the unseen voice of Patricia Hayes’ Mrs Cravatte, this elegant commercial has its cake and eats it.
