Hero Gardener Principal Male/40 to 50/Caucasian Paid

Central Scotland, east of England, Midlands, NW, NE and Yorks USAGE: -

TX March 2013 (2 weeks) and June 2013 (2 weeks)

Role Description: Think, Richard Briers (AS HE WAS IN THE GOOD LIFE) in

his garden / allotment in 'The Good Life'. His calm manner, his comic

timing, his facial change all as the three turnips are dug up. He is

NOT in total shock and surprise, he is pleasantly surprised. We see the

slightest facial acknowledgement of surprise to himself. The

performance is subtle, underplayed. It is the 'huh!' to himself

that says a hundred words, the 'huh!' is in effect him saying 'well

fancy that, three in a row!'.

The surreal aspect in the script is completely underplayed and the

comedy in the commercial comes from this. This is the whole point of

the campaign, that there is value at Farm Foods and this is common

place, no huge fanfare, just good value and good quality product.
