VOICEOVER AND COMMERCIALS
He has also been seen in a cell phone commercial - throwing the mobile phone into a loch!
Robert has done an ad for Virgin mobile. What it says is that there is a fella on a large truck saying something on the lines of 'Do you want to be divorced?' and tells you that you can if you have a Virgin mobile phone. Robert is one of the people in the audience at the front. He is given a phone and a hug. "It's not a bad ad at all." (Thanks Jeannette)
A commercial for a company called Intelligent Finance was filmed in South Africa, which Robert said was an incentive for doing it!
