Surely I'm not the only one who thinks that a half-naked Iggy Pop advertising insurance is just wrong ?

You're not alone; in fact, you're the second person I know who's mentioned it today (this was the first).

Part of me thinks he probably doesn't give a toss what the world says, but another part wants to give him a cardigan and tell him to have a nice sit-down before he does himself a mischief...

Iggy Pop is made of the same kind of indestructible meterial as Keith Richards. They both have the body chemistry that turns an excess of booze and drugs into some kind of preservative.

a half-naked Iggy Pop is just wrong period!

Would you prefer the fully-naked version ?

Where's that brain bleach?

You've never seen 'Cry Baby' then ? A highly recommended John Waters movie that includers a rear view of Iggy standing up in his bath. (the movie is not recommended just for that; the whole thing's fab)

It's not just you...

I dunno, I think Ringo Starr telling us he would never have been successful if he hadn't changed his name is even wronger. Yes, you would, Richard ... none of your mates changed their names, did they?

Good point. And as someone from Norwich, who swore they'd never work for Norwich Union (my brother, Geoff, hated it so much that he quit and joined the Army), I still resent that they're changing their name to something meaningless because they think potential non-British customers will be confused.

It'll be because furriners* can't pronounce Naaaridge prop'ly.

* - people from furrin parts, like America, or Suffolk.

Iggy Pop is just wrong!

Even worse is the name changing advert, I don't know if anyone else has noticed (past the bemusing Ringo Starr going on about his name change- yes you would still be famous dear, it was the band, no-one cared what your name was, you weren't even the best drummer in the band!) that the advert does not verbalise at any point what the company is or is changing to, therefore being completely pointless to any blind or partially sighted viewers, or those who's first language is not english. I have to say, I didn't pay attention so watched it maybe four times before I even noticed the brand name and still do not retain what the new name is to be.

Iggy Pop, especially a semi naked Iggy Pop does not inspire me to trust any company for my insurance!
