Hard to believe it will be 3 years in May since Bill's passing. I somehow missed this parody video in 2006 and it's nice to see it just now, proving Bill was still game for a laugh at around 80 years old.....
Hadn't seen that video before - looks like they're having fun. Really catchy tune to be fair! I now have this image of Bill attending the evening kick off at Wembley and demanding 'Put that light out.'
I don't recall that commercial being shown back in the day, as they say, Andy. The hard of hearing among us might think Bill says 'synchronise Hodges.!' I'm sure Walker would've been able to pick one up cheaper.

Well that is rather a bizarre advert. Haha. Our watches are better because they cost a lot more! and we admit they lose time even when they're digital! Wow. Great to see Bill, "Manuel" and is that Bert Kwouk?

Bill worked with comedian Jimmy Cricket in the 1990s on his radio series Jimmy's Cricket Team - Jimmy is currently uploading episodes from this series on to his website for fans to download here: www.jimmycricket.co.uk/cricket-team/
