Jennifer Hawkins and Frankie's Chairs

We have had a lot of items over the years appear in movies and commericals. But I thought these old metal chairs were worth a highlight.
My oldest son Frankie has "gatherings" around an old table with his mates every now and then. The latest Myer ad features Former Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins dancing around a beach and near the end of the commerical, Frankie's chairs, which we hired out for a week to a local production company. As one of his mates says..."Poor Jennifer, if only she new what went on with those chairs."
Last Night


The Myer Commercial

This Morning the Day after the Night Before

Yes....poor Jennifer....don't worry though Frankie will be cleaning it up as soon as he and his mates emerge.
