Watch: Jack Ladder’s Underwear Ad

Maudlin Sydney singer Jack Ladder has become the latest Australian musician to soundtrack a Bonds television commercial. In his deepest baritone, Ladder and his Dreamlanders (yes, that’s Kirin J Callinan’s glacial guitar fretting away in the background) have recorded a take on the yuletide standard, ‘12 Days of Christmas’, to spruik the “full range of Bonds iconic products for men, women, kids, and bubs”. It follows Bonds’ tube bra campaign, featuring Ratcat’s ‘That Ain’t Bad’ and a cameo from Simon Day; and an ad featuring Super Wild Horses’ ‘Standing On The Corner’ for a line of women’s hipsters.

This.

Also, I would advise against climbing a tree in nothing but a bra and panties - what if you slip? You could graze your hoohaa. Or get a stick caught up there!


spiggy_topes  said about 2 years ago:

''spruik'' shoulda been ''help indie consumers make more informed choices''


LoadMyRig  said about 2 years ago:

''australian''?

''musician''?


FrankieTeardrop  said about 2 years ago:

Jack Ladder sounds more like Stephen Merritt than Nick Cave in this.

Seems to very much make reference to Jack Ladder / Tim 'the artist' as opposed to Jack Ladder the band (...whose guitarist is more interesting and talented than the frontman).

it's mercy arms all over again!


temporarybenbutler  said about 2 years ago:

Still as shit ever.

Yes, I logged in just to say that.


Lozenge  said about 2 years ago:

Whenever I read the name Jack Ladder on here my mind always goes through the same thought process... ''Oh Jack Ladder, that's that tall cunt whose real name is Tim Rogers... haha, that's funny, poor bastard had to change his name didn't he?... the Oz music scene ain't big enough for two Tim Rogers. I wonder if his adopted Ladder name is some sort of reference to his height? ...prolly not, only short arses need ladders... I might listen to his music someday... I hear he sounds just like Nick Cave... ha, one Nick Cave is enough! Oh look!... another thread... doo-dee-doo-dee-doo....''
