Pot Star

by Syd Briscoe


Pot Noodle: “Rock Star” - 30s

Many may be getting sick of instant noodles in the near future as their Covid-19 stashes run low, but this quirky ad for Pot Noodle shows there's still fun to be had. The action sees a bloke graduate from boring old potatoes to the advertised noodle snack - something which inspires him to change his life in all sorts of exciting ways.

Director Martin Granger keeps things squarely on the silly side here, as the bloke swaps barnets with his dog, joins a metal band, and becomes a viral sensation with the exquisitely named 'Filth Magnet'. This is lovely, upbeat work which provides a much-needed laugh in these trying times.
