The ad, starring three of football’s most popular pundits, Jamie Rednap, Alan Hansen and Walkers familiar frontman Gary Lineker, sees Lineker get more than he bargained for when he refuses to share his packet with his fellow presenters. The episode results in Rednap and Hansen ejecting Lineker out of the room, Bond style, reminding the audience of the dire consequences which could come if you don’t share your Walkers ‘Tear and Share’ bag.
Fun was key in this spot and the challenge for the team was to bring this comedic energy to life by delivering fast-cut edits within a short time frame. The Mill’s Shoot Supervisor, Pete Rypstra, explains, ‘As the decision to eject Lineker from the scene was made after the set was built, the team had to rebuild some areas of the roof entirely and all evidence of the rig and wiring attached to Lineker also had to be painted out.
Once completed, this meant that the interaction of the talent with the rest of the elements in the shot could be really perfected.’
