Brixton’s Market Row has provided the backdrop for a new beer advert, which also features a cameo appearance from former Brixton resident Mick Jones, of the Clash.
The video, for a well-known Jamaican lager brand, has a number of fictitious stalls (note the non-existent fish shop, and fake bar in front of Wild Caper). It shows Caribbean street drummer Jo Bucket “surprising” market shoppers, well, mostly actors, while playing the tune of “Rock the Casbah” on various market products. How many fake market units can you spot?
Quite entertaining but mainly for spotting parts of Brixton market – spoiled by the whistling actor street sweeper at the end.
This is a really lame advert!
