WORK:
Hunky Dorys
"The Crinkler"
In this always online, never inhibited world, words cut deeper than ever before. Yet the mouthy protagonist of this Hunky Dorys ad is no internet troll - his job is to scream, abuse, and malign. An employee of Irish crisp makers Hunky Dorys, Christie (played by comedian Darren Conway) yells at slices of fried potato until they form ridges.
