My Brother’s Growing Fame

My Wee brother Kenny has been staring in the unlikely role of “Ill guy with Flu” for the NHS’s flu-jab campaign and it is getting somewhat disconcerting to see my apparently stricken brother staring out of every high street chemist’s window having also mysteriously changed his name to Ben.

The Herald‘s diary the other day mistook him for a publicity stunt for the new Saw movie as he was re-enacting the famous poster for the benefit of passers-by in Sauchiehall Street.

    Crikey, I’ve been walking past that poster in the window of the pharmacy downstairs for ages! I guess he is hard to recognise with all those tubes…

  2. Claire says:

    I’m glad Kenneth is actually neither stricken nor renamed :-)

  3. Claire says:

    P.S. What episode of Rebus was he dead in? And do you sit around comparing your respective performances as dead bodies? ;-)

  4. Jamie Thom says:

    I’m afraid I don’t know which Rebus episode it is! I’ll find out though. Goodness, my performance as a corpse in The Real Inspector Hound was a good long time ago now!

    Crminy! I thought that guy looked familiar! Tell Kenny that tubes do not become him and that he should therefore take pains not to be stricken.
