Curtis Stone Does A Duet With Normie Rowe And Coles Are The Winners

Curtis Stone must be happy that Coles does not advertise in the USA, as credibility and this duet with Normie Rowe do not go together.

I presumed  Coles knew it was so bad it would go viral – which has been a positive thing for supermarket chain. All of Australia now knows they sell beef with no hormones in it.

Also half of Australia must be wondering who the strange peroxide blonde man on screen with Curtis is…

My favourite bit in the advertisement is Normie frottaging Curtis’s leg, a move clearly copied from Altiyan Child’s who used this move on guitar players on The X Factor.

Also Normie just looks a tad crazed – basically if I saw him in my neighbourhood I would be crossing the street to avoid.

However Normie Rowe hits back here with the classic line “If you think I’ve sold out, so have all my shows,” he said.

I hope for Masterchef Australia’s sake that this advertisement is well and truly done and dusted by the time series four starts, as they won’t want viewers swapping channels in the ad breaks.

“Frottaging his leg”… Bwahahahahahahahaha!

RR – please promise me you will NEVER use the words “Altiyam Childs” and “frottage” in a sentence again.

Thank goodness we don’t seem to have this adv yet (country Victoria) and have been spared this horror!!

‘No added hormones’ – so Normie must be getting a dose of something else to inspire his frottage.

7 Culinary Boner { 01.12.12 at 2:05 pm }

I thought frottage was a creamy concoction Manu whipped up with his…um…wo’sit…um…whisk… yeah, whisk

I keep wondering what all those former teenyboppers think when they see Normie in that ad, the stud they used to scream their lungs out for and cream their jeans over. It’s not easy loving you baby…

9 Wurstsemmel { 01.12.12 at 2:35 pm }

They did?
The stud? Looks like he NEEDS the added hormones.

The only thing I know about Normie Rowe was that he was once involved in a punchup on tv. Looks like I should be grateful for that.

Something else Normie should be remembered for – at the height of his popularity he was conscripted into the army and served in Vietnam, which virtually killed his musical career.

11 brain dead dave { 01.12.12 at 3:56 pm }

Yeah, a mate of mine knew Normie in Vietnam. I understand he copped a lot of $hit-stirring over there.

This ad is embarrassing for all involved. However it’s probably worth mentioning that nowhere in Australia sells Beef with hormones in it because it’s illegal, but I guess that’s neither here nor there.

I didnt mind Normie Rowe before this ad, he used to be good in the day but i think he did a really bad job singing in this ad,Im sure he could have tried much harder. He looks so old in the ad and tired, I feel sorry for him.

I love the ad with Normie Rowe and Curtis Stone, not that I like big two food monopolies, but good on you Normie for having a laugh and a bit of fun, as well as earning a quid, and up yours to all the sour commenters.
