John Lydon Gets Bitter, Er, Butter

It’s hard not to feel like this 30-second ad for Country Life Butter, a British brand utilizing the veddy British John “Rotten” Lydon as its pitchman, is an opportunity missed. Not for Country Life itself (though, really, they couldn’t get Bryan Ferry? Even Phil Manzanera? Anyone in Roxy Music, who actually put out an album called Country Life?), but for another type of dairy product. Just imagine the possibilities of Lydon rolling his R’s in service of Parrrrrkaaaaaayyyy! The flavor, after all, said, “butter.” [YouTube]
