Mugged Ecclestone shows his financial prowess with Hublot ad

We all love to hate Bernie Ecclestone, after all, you can’t deny the man is a genius when it comes to organising Formula 1, but his eccentricities and billionaire arrogance can sometimes work against him.

We all love to hate Bernie Ecclestone, after all, you can’t deny the man is a genius when it comes to organising Formula 1, but his eccentricities and billionaire arrogance can sometimes work against him. With that said, though, nobody would have wished a mugging upon him – especially when you see his face!

But Bernie being Bernie, he has decided to turn this misfortune into a business venture. The muggers apparently robbed Bernie’s £200,000 Hublot watch, and subsequently, the brand and the big B himself has pounced on the idea of using Ecclestone’s beaten face as the ad, with the punch line of “See what people will do for a Hublot”.

Car finances aside Bernie’s genius with this ad is unparalleled. Only he could have pulled it off – and let’s be honest, it works.
