Could Sylvester Stallone be following fellow '80s icons Arnold Schwarzenegger and Kevin Bacon into becoming a star of the UK.'s ad scene? At any rate, he proves he has a sense of humor in this blockbuster-style 110-second spot for bread brand Warburtons

Created by WCRS, it shows Stallone pitching an idea for a film to founder Jonathan Warburton, in which his latest action hero role is as a delivery driver for its loaves of bread. With humorous nods to his own starring roles in "Rocky," Rambo" and more, he then appears alongside real-life Warburtons bakers and drivers as he acts out the story idea.

Declan Lowney directed the spot through Another Film Company, and it broke during a special "ITV Presents" slot in the first ad break of "Britain's Got Talent" this weekend.
