Who the Doherty

Peter Doherty was in Manchester yesterday to shoot an ad. He met up with a possible new role model...Mike Tyson who, of course, knows a thing or two about going off the rails. An ad?

The question is who would pay Baby Shambles singer and former Libertine to front an ad campaign for them?

So far the only brands that spring to mind are blindingly obvious. He would, of course, be ideal for Special Brew of Kestrel Lager. He likes a bit of a smoke as well so Rizla is always an option.

He's also a great ad for his lawyer who gets him off time after time. Surely that must be the answer. For whoever does represent car-crashing, drugs-carrying and fist-flying Doherty is surely a legal genius.

If anyone does really know, be sure to let us know.

Apparently French Connection are looking for a new set of brand values, however on balance I'm going for:
1. Bisto - he loves his mum and always phones to let her know he's not dead (again)

2. The Guardian - the brand that ate itself, actually after that Hizb Ut Tahir debacle he's more likely to crop up as a columnist: Pete Doherty takes a critical look at the government's community safety agenda and asks whether Crack really is as dangerous for single mothers as Reading Borough Council claim...

- hmmm... make that The Telegraph it could be up there with that Soviet style youth delivery promo they did in the late 90s, sort of Glasnost with Gentlemen's Relish ...which takes us right back to Doherty - about as threatening to social norms as Sebastian Horsley...

God doesn't time coalesce - that Telegraph thing was in the late 80's...
