Jane Birkin will not share her chocolate with John Junkin

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:


About tinynoggin

I love films (anything from exploitation stuff to stylish Eastern European cinema, but I'm not really into blockbusters and modern Hollywood), music (Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Michel Polnareff, Left Banke, Francoise Hardy, The Seeds, Love, The Zombies, etc) and books (Kurt Vonnegut, Julian Maclaren-Ross, Michel Houellebecq, Patrick Hamilton, Alan Sillitoe, and more). I take photographs with my Lomography Diana F plus or my Olympus Trip and like making stuff in my spare time.
