Just noticed the other night that John Hurt does the voiceover for that Muller Corners advert with the cow running on the beach. Why? He doesn't need the cash. He doesn't need the exposure. I assume he doesn't just madly love thier product. So why do it? The the manufacturers have photos of him in a compromising situation or something?

Which ones do you hate?
