Thom Yorke’s face used to advertise medication in Russia

Radiohead frontman was also recently spotted on the cover of an Iranian book about sexual and marital problems

An image of Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has reportedly been used to advertise medication in Russia.

A Twitter user alleges to have recently spotted a billboard in Russia, which features text that translates to “We will help you to forget about insomnia, fatigue, skin problems, cold, attention deficit disorder, and headaches”. An old promo picture of Yorke features on the advert. See the image above.

Earlier this week, it was reported that the same image of Yorke is being used on the cover of a book in Iran about sexual and marital problems. The singer graces the front sleeve of the book along with the pictures of two other unidentified males. The book’s title translates in English to Marital And Sexual Problems In Men.


A Twitter user named @Mehr_DaD alleges that he found the book “about three years ago at my uncle’s bookstore located in Mashhad, Iran”.The book in question is currently on sale here. See the cover here.

Meanwhile, Radiohead are thought to have begun recording their new album last autumn. In February, Jonny Greenwood said the band have “changed their method” for the new LP, telling Indian newspaper The Sunday Guardian: “It’s too involved to explain how. We’re kind of limiting ourselves, working within limits. We’re trying to use very old and very new technology together to see what happens.”

More recently, Thom Yorke offered his support to Green Party MP Caroline Lucas. Following the Conservatives’ UK general election win, Yorke tweeted, “the City must be very pleased… (spits)”.
