Target - Geoff Hurst
England's 1966 hat-trick hero doesn't sweat the small stuff - or at all, according to this deodorant commercial.
Score a hat-trick in a World Cup final and the world is your oyster. Few people (outside millions of Germans and fans of the ozone layer) are going to begrudge England hero Geoff Hurst the chance to earn a few quid selling suspiciously generic-looking aerosol deodorant. Note that there is no suggestion that Geoff would use Target before the game - that would be unmanly. No, Geoff needs his "man-size protection" in the bar with a pint and two ladies after the game. Those were the days?
