0357/1822 August 2018Nova 100
In the Nova100 tv commercial promoting the morning show "Chrissie, Sam and Browny", images of the individuals appear when their names were announced. Chrissie Swan appeared as Chrissie, Sam Smith (the UK singer) appeared as Sam, and Jonathan Brown as Browny. Then Sam Pang appeared and interrupted the commentator, saying that isn't he the Sam? The commentator corrects the error.
The ad finishes with three of them - Chrissie Swan, Jonathan Brown and Sam Pang on screen. Jonathan Brown and Christie Swan stands on the left of the screen, while Sam Pang approaches to join them from the right. When Sam Pang tries to come close, Jonathan Brown pushes him away. Then Sam Pang makes a second attempt to join them again, Jonathan Brown once again pushes him away, this time rather forcefully on the head. The ad ends without Sam Pang actually being in the shot with Jonathan Brown and Chrissie Swan.
