Johnny Rotten Went Down Like Buttah?

Sex Pistols Singer Reportedly Boosts Sales of Country Life by 85%

By Published on .

We wrote a particularly scathing diatribe on Johnny Rotten (aka John Lydon) a while back when he starred in a spot for Country Life butter, which, re-reading now, shocks even us (seriously, what's that guy's problem?).
