If you asked me back when I was in junior high school and I discovered the Sex Pistols if I’d think in a million years that Johnny Rotten would be doing a commercial, I’d have told you that you were crazy. You see back then the band was considered “dangerous” and if you liked them you were pretty much an outcast open for ridicule and beatings by the “in crowd”. Hell, if you asked me 5 years ago I might still have thought you crazy. You see, when I think about Johnny Rotten/Lydon I think about punk rock, the Sex Pistols, and Public Image, Ltd. The last thing in the world I’d likely be thinking about would be butter.
Yet somehow, some butter company overseas thought Johnny Lydon would be the perfect spokesman to shill their product in a TV commercial. I never thought I’d see the day that Mr. Rotten would be doing a commercial that you’d likely see during a soap opera but the evidence is below. Of course, I never thought I’d live long enough to see gas cost $4 a gallon either. Times are a changing.
