Classic advert stars are unrecognisable as we reveal where they are now – £53K tax fraud row to bizarre death rumours
YOU know when you’ve been Tango’ed – and you’re unlikely to ever forget.
This year marks 30 years since the controversial fizzy drink ad was banned from British telly in 1992.
The advert showed an orange man – played by classical actor Peter Geeves – jump out from behind a postbox and slap a man in the face.
Speaking in 2006, Peter told ITV: "I was asked to first of all run around, then run around and scream, then run around screaming topless, it was at that point I thought 'aye-aye, this isn't the normal run of the mill advert'."
The wildly popular commercial sparked a playground slapping craze – which caused a few perforated eardrums.
The Independent Television Commission decided to ban the advert from the airwaves in 1992.
