Supergrass’ Gaz Coombes moves into car advertising

Those bills have to get paid somehow...

Former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes is moving into the world of acting – by starring in a new Toyota advert.

For the plot of the new promo clip Coombes, who plays himself, is spotted by a fan walking down the street, who then asks his girlfriend if she will take a picture of him. However, in a cruel twist, she takes a picture of something else in retribution for her boyfriend getting toast crumbs in her Toyota Yaris.

The advert (pictured) features Supergrass‘ 1999 hit ‘Pumping On Your Stereo’.

Away from shooting car adverts, Coombes is currently working on his first solo album, due out next year. According to a post on the Facebook page of his side-project The Hot Rats,, he is working with producer Sam Williams in his Oxford studio.

The advert will air from January 1.
