Southern exposure

Editor TVCs, News Make a Comment

Anecdotally, there’s been a surge of Jeremy Wells fans checking out their object of desire getting his gear off for Meridian and Barnes, Catmur & Friends.

Jeremy Irons thanks to Meridian is the tagline for the power company’s latest campaign out of the indie agency.

The ads, which have been running for the past fortnight, star Jeremy Wells and his remarkable pecs doing a spot of nude ironing. Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder makes a guest appearance (but keeps his kit on).

Late last year, Barnes, Catmur & Friends won the Meridian business from Assignment and – not surprisingly, given the man’s presence –retained Wells (originally signed by Assignment) as its frontman.

The ad is also running in print and online.
