Bernie Ecclestone Calls Time On Muggers

by | 8th, December 2010

BERNIE Ecclestone has turned his mugging into an advert for Hublot, a reassuringly expensive brand of watches aimed at people for whom time is money, such as the £11,000 item he had stolen.

The mugging had threatened to make Ecclestone a figure of pity and fun. It was Ecclestone who in light of villains attempting to carjack Jenson Button in Brazil, opined:

“They look for victims, they look for anyone that looks like a soft touch and not too bright. The people that look a bit soft and simple, they will always have a go at.”

A short while later, Bernie was mugged.

No Ecclestone is the face of an advert that advises:

“See what people will do for a Hublot”.

One shudders to think what they would have done for a Piaget’s Emperador Temple..?
