Separated at birth?
August 19, 2016 | Infiniti has an ad featuring Kit Harrington that is enjoying heavy play right now. Frankly, I find it just plain creepy.
Harrington plays Jon Snow on Game of Thrones so I imagine that a lot of people know him. The description of the ad says,
Harrington … drives the Infinity Q60 in slow-motion. As he passes over scattered leaves along the road, they fly into the air in his wake and the footage resumes at a normal speed. Infiniti announces that the coupe is back, stating, "A car should only be measured by one thing -- how it makes you feel."
As I said, this ad makes me feel creeped-out! The very first thought that came into my mind when I saw the ad was, "I thought Charles Manson was dead. What's he doing making commercials?"
Let me be clear, I know nothing about Harrington; he may be a terrific actor that I've never seen. Nor do I know anything about the role Harrington plays, Jon Snow; he may be a good guy, a bad guy, or just indifferent. But the look in this ad is just too evocative of Manson and his cult that carried out several horrific murders in the late 1960s. I shudder every time I see the ad.
