Bob Dylan to support the Co-op during Corrie

Facebook message from Paul Murphy of Manchester Co-operative Party

Great news!

Co-op Bob Dylan advert to take over entire Coronation Street ad break (from the Daily Mirror)

Music legend Bob Dylan is to fill an entire commercial break in Coronation Street.

The Co-op has chosen the ITV1 soap to launch its new £10million advertising campaign featuring the folk poet's 60s protest song Blowin' in the Wind.

The two-and-a-half minute commercial will be shown for the first time a week on Monday - February 16 - and the anthem for change is the first work Dylan has allowed to be used in a television ad.

If you want to join the Co-op Party contact me, Louise Baldock, Secretary, Liverpool Co-operative Party, thanks (link to Co-op Party in my links to the left)

First he sells out his folk roots at the free trade hall, next he allows his music to be used on adverts (with a 40 odd year gap) what next, celebrity big brother!
