In the 1960s Jane Birkin made a TV advert for Cadbury’s Bar Six chocolate with the great British actor and TV presenter John Junkin. John Junkin plays a traffic warden who catches Jane parked up buying a bar of chocolate from a vending machine without paying to park in a parking zone. Jane uses her feminine wiles and her Bar Six to distract John Junkin – “Do you want a bit?” Of course he does, but she tells him that he can buy a Bar Six from the machine behind him and promptly drives off leaving him stunned. As much as I liked John Junkin I probably wouldn’t share my Bar Six with him either – too yummy.
Here are some images from the advert, kind of spoilt by the BBC Four logo (it’s taken from the Jane Birkin: Je t’aime documentary) and the French subtitling, but beggars can’t be choosers:
