Judge Dredd Ad
Here's a 1992 ad for a UK drink product contest featuring as unlikely pitchman Judge Dredd. By that point more than ten years old, 2000 AD's Dredd had become as iconic in Great Britain and parts of Europe as Batman and Spider-Man. Never really more than a cult figure in the US for some reason, the well-written and often amazingly and uniquely drawn (and/or painted) satirical adventures of the world's most incorruptable lawman continue unabated to this day. Special thanks to the erstwhile Klaus Kinski, Jr. ( Bruce over at Bookgasm) for pointing out this ad to me.
