Actor and 'hard throb' Sean Bean was at the heart of a health blunder today.
The versatile thespian as well known for his tough guy roles as his voice over work, caused confusion amongst shoppers and blood doners alike.
The Spoof has discovered that a mix up within the editing suite at advertising HQ 'Subliminal House' resulted in a broadcast inviting blood doners to "Do something amazing..give blood...another good reason to shop at Morrisons".
Unfortunately the demographic of viewers to the late night satellite channel that hosted the blunder, was such that they took the ad at face value and turned up at various Supermarkets demanding facilities to spill their blood in the hope of B.O.G.O.F offers.
Mrs O'Neil, an elderly shopper admitted " I was hoping for a cup of tea and a biscuit at least...it's a disgrace".
Mr Beans agent made a statement on behalf of the actor." This mix up is in no way the responsibility of Mr Bean, if anyone dies from the lack of blood ...talk to Morrisons".
The Blood Donor service declined comment, although a source tells Spoof that money off vouchers have been changing hands at the highest levels.
