Well, he does do the Travelocity commercials (with the Travelling Gnome).

I haven't seen it. Is it just voice over or is he actually in it??

Don't know exactly how to describe it.

It's definatly a spoof of other ads - it is the "Angus Beef diet"

Have to look out for it again to make sure I wasn't seeing things now...

I saw that also. Very strange to see Harry on US TV even if he has been doing the recent gnome ads for the travel company.

It wasn't until the end of the ad I realised it was him. Gawd bless 'im, I was only thinking of The Old Gits just this last week.


Cheers,

I've seen it now. It was him.

Ahh... I remember when he was funny...

My fave was the Slobs - Wayne and Waynetta were talking about marrage and the kids:

"When are you gonna leave me. It's not natural this."

"The kids are being teased on the estate: 'You've got a Daddy, you've got a Daddy.' "

And Waynetta wanting to have a brown baby!

Interesting that there's no reference to Harry on the website.

I also spotted that the sports car driven was right hand drive one in the advert but I'm still not 100% that the actor was Harry???....
