If you're not English you probably don't get why this is funny. However, what is odd, is that I'm actually in this photo - a very small ginger wig in the top right. To make some money while at university, I was on several casting agencies books and this is one of the gigs I got - promoting the Liverpool football team's away kit for Reebok. I never saw the finished product until this morning.
