Not a concept millennials seem to understand, is it?

Have you SEEN those Harvey Keitel ads?!?

Do millennials even know who Keitel is?

Utter tosh. No such thing as selling out. Who are we to judge others decisions, especially when it comes to musicians, actors etc? We all do stuff that is unpalatable when it comes to earning a living.

Sad times for poor john.

Harvey Keitel's adverts are the worst, it's just demeaning, cheapening himself as an actor by hawking himself out to piss all over a film he did years ago. Seriously, does he need the money that much?

John Lydon was always a cheap caricature, flogging attitude for cash, the butter-flogging is just a continuation of his persona.

Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Maybe he does, that's the thing.

I dunno. I understand the objections but truthfully I don't care these days about this sorta thing.

Well they're weird, you know? Pulp Fiction was over 20 years ago and I know it was popular but...

Remember that moneysupermarket (?) advert that referenced Swingers with the "you're so money" quote? I didn't get that either.

Think he did that to pay for the next PIL or solo album, that happened to be good.

It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if he did. In fact, if he’s doing them, I think you have to assume that he DOES need the money. I don’t blame him either way.
