For those unfamiliar with the ‘Henry’ vac, the image below shows the original. The typography, large black ‘hat’ and simplified face are all characteristics of the iconic household product (iconic here in the UK, at least) – and it was the black hat itself that sparked the connection.
And yes, I loved the series. It took me a surprisingly long time to recognise Bryan Cranston (when I started watching Breaking Bad I wasn’t familiar with Cranston by name), having only seen the actor as Hal in Malcolm in the Middle.
Versatility is the sign of a great actor.
With special thanks to Blinkbox for promoting my creative intervention (and I won’t mention the typo…)
