Holsten copied Leary character

A Holsten insider claims that “Dennis Leary was unknown in the UK before he appeared in the Holsten ads. We created his character…” (MW April 17).

“B*ll**ks!” as Leary might say.

Leary has been widely admired in the UK since the late Eighties.

Holsten has no right to bleat about Leary doing the same act in some US spots for Lotus.

It’s his “character” and Holsten copied it.

Time, I think, for Holsten to Get Real.
