Walkers Tear 'n' Share: To Crispfinity and Beyond

by Syd Briscoe


Walkers Tear 'n' Share: “Movie Night” - 30s

Gary Lineker fails to understand the importance of sharing in this funny ad for Walkers Tear 'n' Share. While the name of the product clearly implies it's not designed for a person to stuff in their gob alone, Gary has missed the memo and rebuffs his friends' crisp-grabbing advances... until they take matters into their own hands.

It's a nicely handled piece of work, the movie night narrative juxtaposed neatly by the film-within-a-film. The astronaut spoof is a good choice, all stoicism and sacrifice in the face of the last 'protein pill'. We get the impression Gary would have had it in his mouth before anyone else could blink, the greedy sod.
