Pushing His Luck

by | 6th, May 2004

‘FRANE Selaks is nicknamed Lucky after cheating death seven times, having four failed marriages and then winning the equivalent of £600,000 with his first lottery ticket.

But when Doritos tried to tempt him from Zagreb to Australia to film a TV commercial, he was having none of it.

The 75-year-old explained that he didn’t want to tempt fate – and persuaded the company to fly to Croatia to film him.

‘I never had any accidents while travelling on a boat or a ship so I thought about going there that way but it would have taken a month and my wife would not want me to be away for that long,” he said.

‘I didn’t want to risk another accident while I was travelling by air.”’
