Samuel L. Jackson has become the latest face of UK’s biggest bakery brand Warburtons, joining a series of A-list legends who have taken on the role.
In the new two minute advert the Pulp Fiction star, 74, turns his hand to the top job in the Warburtons business, alongside the bakery’s real chairman, Jonathan Warburton.
While the bread advert may not have the same gravitas as his Oscar-nominated role in Pulp Fiction, Jackson will no doubt have received a hefty cheque for his day of work.
Although bakery boss Jonathan Warburton will not disclose the exact figure he shelled out he confessed the Hollywood partnerships are a ‘huge outlay’ with Robert De Niro, Sylvester Stallone, and George Clooney said to have received six-figure sums when they starred in his campaigns.
Now, MailOnline takes a look at the Hollywood heavyweights who swapped the silver screen for British TV adverts.
Snoop Dogg and Just Eat
In 2020 legendary rapper Snoop Dogg partnered with takeaway service Just Eat, starring in their adverts and recording a new song for the company.
The star gives the jingle ‘Did somebody say Just Eat’ a new twist in the popular advert.
He is said to have been paid £5.3 million for the 30 second clip, with a source explaining: ‘It’s easy money and the adverts have proved a hit with audiences.
‘Snoop is a legendary character so the negotiation took time and plenty of cash. But having him on board has not only driven sales, it’s given the brand a massive boost.’
The music insider added the song has proved very popular on social media and is the company’s most successful advert.
After its success in the UK, the campaign was rolled out across Europe and Australia.
Britney Spears, Kevin Bacon and EE
Golden Globe winner Kevin Bacon has been a brand ambassador for British mobile network operator EE since 2012 and has been featured in several ads for the company.
One notable advert saw him team up with Britney Spears, donning the singer’s iconic red catsuit and dancing around in front of the less than impressed pop star.
EE chief executive Marc Allera said they had chosen Spears for a recognisable and retro feel to the ad campaign, explaining: ‘We were looking for an instantly recognisable star and track with mass appeal, that Kevin could impersonate.
‘We also needed someone willing to embrace the playful nature of our ads and have a bit of fun. Britney was the perfect choice with her red rubber catsuit and her world famous Oops I did It Again track.’
Bacon is allegedly paid in the seven figure range for his EE partnership.
Mr T and Snickers
The A-Team star Mr T starred in one of Snickers’ most memorable and controversial adverts in 2008.
The clip showed the actor in a tank pulling up alongside a man exercising in tight yellow shorts before shouting: ‘Speed walking? I pity you fool. You are a disgrace to the man race. It’s time to run like a real man.’
He then forces the man to break into a sprint by taking pot shots at him with a Snickers machine gun.
It ended with Mr T uttering the slogan to the current Snickers campaign – ‘Get some nuts’.
However, just days after the advert debuted it was taken off the air following strong protests from the U.S. – despite the fact it was never shown on American television.
The U.S. lobby group Human Rights Campaign claimed the advert was homophobic, criticising Mars – which makes Snickers – for condoning ‘the notion that the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community is a group of second class citizens and that violence against GLBT people is not only acceptable but humorous’.
A spokesman for Mars said: ‘This ad is the second in a series of UK Snickers ads featuring Mr T, which are meant to be fun and have been positively received in the UK.
‘However, we understand that humour is highly subjective, and it is never our intention to cause offence. Accordingly, we have pulled the Mr T speedwalker ad globally.’
Nicole Kidman, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Compare The Market
Veteran actor and former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger surprised fans in 2015 when he signed up to promote a two for one cinema offer with price comparison website comparethemeerkat.com.
In the advert, the former action hero Schwarzenegger was seen facing off against the hugely successful marketing campaign’s loveable meerkats Aleksandr and Sergei Orlov.
An insider said of the casting: ‘Arnie has worldwide appeal. He’s not going to come cheap but it will pay off in the long run.’
Later in the year, Arnie was replace by Oscar winning actress Nicole Kidman.
In the 40-second television advert, mother-of-four Nicole was seen arriving at the door of meerkat Aleksandr’s LA mansion – but proceeds to go on a date with his pal, Sergei.
Much to Aleksandr’s annoyance, the Australian actress finds Sergei adorable for using his Meerkat Movies code to take her to the cinema, and is seen stroking his face affectionately.
Gary Oldman and HTC
Three-time BAFTA winner Gary Oldman lent his star power to phone company HTC in 2014.
While Oldman is famously a method actor, he wouldn’t have needed to immerse himself too much for this role, which saw him say just three lines.
In the clip for the HTC handset One M8 smartphone, Oldman said: ‘Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
‘It doesn’t matter what I say, because the new HTC is designed for people who form their own opinions.
‘So go on then, ask the internet’.
HTC’s global marketing manager, Fiona Naughton, said of their new campaign. ‘We are investing in marketing talent to create different marketing that is not mainstream because we want people to understand the brand as well as the product.’
While it’s not known how much Oldman was paid for the advert, his predecessor Last year Robert Downey Junior was rumoured to have been paid a staggering $12 million to appear in a quirky commercial for the company.
Ryan Reynolds and BT
In 2016, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds parodied his Hollywood lifestyle in an advert for BT.
The big budget campaign featured Reynolds jumping out of cars, walking through glass doors and mass signing autographs while being unable to slow down due to his hectic lifestyle.
The advert was rolled out across TV, national press and online but ended up banned following a complaint from rival Virgin Media.
The campaign promoted its ‘up to’ 52Mb Infinity fibre service as the ‘fastest speeds vs standard entry-level fibre products of major broadband providers’, with one ad including a comparison with Sky that used speedometer graphics.
Virgin Media lodged a complaint with the Advertising Standards Authority arguing that the ad misleadingly implied BT’s 52Mb Infinity service was the fastest maximum speed service for a lowest-priced package available in the UK.
The ASA concluded that the ads were misleading and had breached the UK advertising code.
Bruce Willis and Sky Broadband
Action man Bruce Willis starred in a comical Sky Broadband advert in 2013, with the star seen sprinting into an office while in his dressing gown.
The Hollywood heavyweight is struggling with his broadband in the clip, and is unable to watch himself in Die Hard without the picture pixelating.
He ultimately ends up deciding to switch to Sky Broadband before landing a date with an attractive office worker.
However, the advert was banned by the Advertising Standards Authority because it didn’t make clear the commitment customers needed to undertake in order to take advantage of their promotional pricing.
Jackie Chan and Woolworths
Martial arts legend Jackie Chan surprised fans when he appeared in an advert for the now defunct Woolworths in 2008.
The advert was in the style of a sitcom and saw the Karate Kid star chatting to puppets of a sheep and sheepdog.
The bizarre clip saw the puppets run to Woolworths to buy clothes while Chan stayed in the house showing off his karate moves.
While it was not revealed how much Chan was paid for the advert, it may have been more than the High Street department store could afford, as the company went bust in the same year.
The newly released second series of the Netflix hit programme, Selling the OC, follows the Oppenheim Group as they take on the Orange County, showing off luxury listings and boisterous personalities, and among them is Polly Brindle.
Originally from Barnoldwick, West Yorkshire, Polly, the only Brit on the addictive show, has quickly made her mark from luring fans in with her accent to boldly demanding respect from team members.
But the 36-year-old has defied expectations. Having only been an estate agent for one year, Brindle professionally manages to close impressive deals on multimillion-dollar Hollywood homes.
It wasn’t until the pandemic that Brindle realised her desire to become a realtor, and she was still studying for her real estate license when she secured a position on the show.
Though success isn’t her only defining attribute, and glamour doesn’t fall short behind.
If you thought Selling Sunset was highoctane, then Selling The OC- which centres on the goings-on at Oppenheim’s offices in California’s Orange County- is its little sister on steroids.
And amidst the cost-of-living crisis, it provides a timely bit of escapism.
The show launched in 2021 with a peek into an eye-watering $106million listing in Laguna Beach, complete with ocean views, glassbottomed spiral staircases, a retractable roof and a 360-degree rotating bed (the commission on this sale alone is $3.18million).
While these properties are understated compared with the LA homes in Selling Sunset (‘celebrities tend to have their second homes here in Orange County,’ explains Polly), they are nonetheless show-stoppers.
‘Living walls’ teeming with thousands of plants are de rigueur, as are ‘water walls’ flowing from as high as 40ft, not to mention the almost obligatory infinity pools, customised wine cellars and home movie theatres.
But it’s the drama between the realtors — dressed as if they’re heading to Harry’s Bar rather than a house viewing — for which millions are really tuning in.
There are tears, tantrums and colleagues trying to seduce their married co-workers. And 36-year-old Polly is at the heart of much of it.
But Brindle’s journey to show is unlike the others, transitioning from Barnoldwick to Netflix stardom on Selling the OC.
The stunning model-turned-realtor hails from Barnoldswick in rural Lancashire (population 11,000), not known for its billionaires.
‘It’s way up north, very picturesque and has a very small-town mentality where everyone knows everyone else.
‘It’s a very down-to-earth place,’ Polly previously revealed in conversation with The Daily Mail.
Barnoldswick is certainly a far cry from the sun-drenched beaches of Orange County.
Polly grew up in a four-bedroom semi with her older sister Ellen, younger brother Harvey and parents Geoff, an architect, and Clare, a taxidermist.
At 15, she was spotted by a modelling scout and a year later, she left home and moved to Paris, then Milan and Barcelona, working for the likes of Virgin, Dior, Aston Martin and Marks & Spencer. She even filmed a commercial for Lancôme with Julia Roberts.
At 24, she married her husband, a model and poker player eight years her senior, and a year later they moved from London to Los Angeles ‘to have beach babies and live the American Dream’.
She loved married life and loved ‘being the perfect wife. ‘I was making dinner every night for 7 o’clock, doing the laundry and on top of that, being the breadwinner. But I was happy to do it.
‘The plan was to have four kids in total, three by the time I was 30, the white picket fence, everything. I was on track to do that and it was the perfect marriage,’ she said, ‘right up until the moment it wasn’t.’
As she revealed in the show, just five years into the marriage, her perfect life fell apart when she found pictures on her husband’s phone of him cheating.
‘Until that time I never suspected anything and I’d never snooped on him,’ she said.
‘But he came home from a trip that time and certain things just weren’t adding up.
‘I asked to see his phone and he’d deleted everything, but my brother is a computer genius and he’d given me software that could retrieve deleted information.’
She soon realised that her husband was not who he claimed to be. Having experienced divorce aged 12 when her parents separated, she never wanted to go through a repeat.
But two days after Polly found the images on his phone, he left for England and she never saw him again.
But that was just the start of her problems. As she was a U.S. visa holder, unlike her husband, she had full financial responsibility of their belongings.
She was consequently left with two leased cars under her name while renting a four-bedroom house that was more than she could afford by herself.
The financial struggle led to four years of legal back and-forth scuffles with her ex. ‘He owed me money from the house we had lived in in London and I needed that money to start all over again, so it was a battle,’ she said.
Though she had been modelling in California, the separation took a toll on her health, which meant she took a step back from her work.
‘No client wants you to represent their product when you look visibly distraught,’ she told Daily Mail.
Polly turned to a multitude of jobs, from waiting tables at West Hollywood’s Sunset Tower Hotel to managing a boutique architecture firm.
Working in architecture proved to be invaluable to Polly, who quickly came to understand the industry jargon and how to read plans.
When the pandemic hit in 2020, it served as a full stop, allowing her to think about her plans for the future.
She moved to Orange County and, while studying for her realtor’s licence, stumbled upon the Oppenheim Group’s new office, then under construction.
She knew after the first look that she was going to work there. So, Polly contacted Jason Oppenheim, who founded the company and runs it with his twin brother Brett.
The pair met up and Jason mentioned that they were making a new show, and she recalled instantly thinking ‘I’m down for this…I’m not a wallflower, so I thought I’d probably be a good fit.’
Jason, the show’s compact dynamo, who appears to spend as much time mediating between squabbling agents as he does running the business (the Oppenheim Group has made almost $2billion in sales and he is believed to be worth around $50million) admitted that he worries when hiring people that lack experience.
But found that Polly is focused and ambitious, which allowed her to quickly succeed in the business.
He added that Polly is additionally impressive as that she came from humble beginnings.
In a neat illustration of that, Polly revealed that she inked her first real-estate deal over oysters and martinis at the Sunset Tower Hotel — where she had waitressed only a few years previously.
Earlier this week, the second series of Selling the OC reached screens globally, and Polly has been in the spotlight.
Brindle can be seen closing deals while donning glamorous outfits fit for a nightclub.
Since its release, fans have speculated about her behaviour and gushed over the Yorkshire native’s trendy looks and bold personality.
But while Brindle’s often juicy actions on the show are up for debate with viewers, if one thing isn’t, it’s her success story from a little-known Yorkshire village, even to British fans, to Netflix stardom on Selling the OC.
- Rusedski, 49, wanted to run workshops and a B&B at his home in West Sussex
- But planners threw out the plans earlier this year and he has now decided to sell
Former British tennis number one Greg Rusedski is quitting his £3million country home after losing a three-year battle to turn it into a yoga and wellness retreat.
The ex-Wimbledon star, 49, and his NHS therapist wife Lucy wanted to run residential workshops and a bed and breakfast for up to 12 guests at their West Sussex farmhouse.
But planners at the local council threw out the plans earlier this year and the couple have now put their 18th Century Grade II listed home up for sale.
Rusedski had applied for planning permission for a ‘change of use’ of the property and officials were set to rule the proposed development ‘in’, not ‘out’.
But the local planning authority then served up legal opinion with lawyers called in to argue that the proposed use was as a hotel/guest house, not mixed residential.
Under the plans, a 50ft party barn within the grounds would have been used for team-building exercises, executive leadership coaching, masterclasses and seminars with bed and breakfast provided in the main seven-bedroom farmhouse which boasts six reception rooms, a swimming pool and stables.
But almost half a dozen residents and the parish council objected, saying the access to Rusedski’s home was ‘wholly inappropriate’ for commercial use as it lies on a single track shared with six other properties.
Rusedski put his home on the market with posh estate agents Knight Frank during this year’s Wimbledon tournament, with a guide price of £3million.
The farmhouse boasts original timber beams, large inglenook fireplaces and original wooden doors.
The farm also includes a separate guest and staff cottage with its own private terrace next to a heated outdoor pool.
It is described as being on the edge of one of the most sought-after villages in West Sussex with a further 33 acres of woodland, pond and pasture possibly available by separate negotiation.
In the sales listing, the estate agents said: ‘The current owners have carefully refurbished the house during their ownership, creating a stylish and contemporary family house with surprisingly grand proportions for a house of this age.
‘The outstanding party barn is over 1,500 sq.ft in space and has been beautifully restored to provide excellent space for entertaining and dining on a grand scale with underfloor heating and a commercially equipped kitchen.
‘Mature gardens and grounds surround the house and provide excellent views over the surrounding countryside.’
In 2016, Rusedski lost a second battle to build a tennis court in the grounds of his home after officials ruled that he had failed to prove that the proposed site was garden rather than farmland.
The former British number 1, who won 15 singles titles and was once ranked number four in the world, served up plans to turn his home into a wellness retreat in 2020 but finally withdrew them in February.
In a letter to planners, parish clerk Lynne Brooks said: ‘It might interest you to know that the applicant has not been at [the farm] for some months and the property is on a long term lease.
‘There is, and never has been, any real evidence of the applicant being vested in the community.
‘It leaves us with no other conclusion than to assume that this application is an exercise to maximise the value of an asset with total disregard for the community.’
But Rusedski’s planning agent volleyed back, saying: ‘The client will be operating the site and can be considered to be involved with the local community.
‘The client understands the special nature and responsibility of the ownership of a listed building and this formed part of the initial reasoning for the purchase of the building.’
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HydroGraph Clean Power Inc. (CSE: HG) (OTCQB: HGCPF) (the “Company” or “HydroGraph”), a manufacturer of high-quality nanomaterials, today announced that its patented Hyperion System (“Hyperion”), designed for scaled-up production of high-purity graphene achieved a key technology milestone to produce commercial scale quantities graphene. The Hyperion System will produce fractal graphene to serve the various markets including lubricants, energy storage, resins, specialty chemicals, coatings and other markets. The validation process confirmed the capex cost per metric ton of graphene produced will be one of the lowest in the industry. The system can produce over 10 metric tons per year using readily available commodity acetylene and oxygen.
“A year ago, we challenged ourselves to design and construct a commercial scale graphene production unit at the lowest capital cost in the world. In a year, we have gone from a rudimentary proof-of-concept unit to this powerful production system,” said Stephen Corkill, VP of Operations. “With the advancement of this unit, I am proud to say the Hydrograph team has exceeded both cost and production expectations, further positioning HydroGraph as the leader in production of high purity graphene.”
The 2×2 meter modular system is comprised of mostly off-the-shelf components with no major rotating equipment allowing for easy deployment, operating on customer location by integrating into a production line or engineered with additional “reactive graphene” functionalization for increased product performance. The compact footprint also provides environmental benefits through minimal energy usage and low operating costs with one operator able to run multiple systems.
HydroGraph aims to open regional production facilities serving targeted customer locations in 2024. All facilities and production units will be owned by HydroGraph with graphene being sold to customers under long-term contracts. This will allow graphene produced to be engineered to customer volume and specification. Construction lead time for additional units is currently expected to be between 3 and 4 months.
HydroGraph is currently investigating over 20 different graphene applications with over 40 potential customers including 15 testing/NDA agreements already in place.
