"Fawlty" Logic Fuels John Cleese In Specsavers Spot Directed By Blink’s Tim Bullock
Director Tim Bullock of production house Blink has teamed up with Specsavers Creative and actor/comedian John Cleese to revive in this commercial the frustrated hotelier character, Basil Fawlty, he played in the classic BBC comedy series Fawlty Towers.
The spot centers on a memorable moment from that show but with a twist--Basil should have gone to Specsavers.
