A TV advert for British baking company Warburtons, featuring Sylvester Stallone, has premiered in the UK.
The commercial, entitled ‘The Deliverers’, depicts Stallone calling chairman Jonathan Warburton to pitch a movie idea in which he stars as one of the firm’s delivery drivers. Playing the part of a no-nonsense baker and delivery driver, Stallone leads his own elite team of real life Warburtons heroes who stop at nothing to deliver fresh loaves to stores across the country every day. If you’re in the UK, you can see the advert below:
In other news, the forthcoming Rocky spin-off, Creed, has wrapped shooting. Sly celebrated by posting the first official image from the movie on his Instagram feed.
Fruitvale Station‘s Ryan Coogler directs from a screenplay he wrote with Aaron Covington, based on characters from the Rocky series written by Stallone. Hitting the big screen November 25, Creed is being produced by Robert Chartoff, Irwin Winkler, Charles Winkler, William Chartoff, David Winkler, Sylvester Stallone and Kevin King Templeton.
So what’s next for Stallone?
We’ll let Sly tweet for himself on that one:

" Stallone, I want to congratulate you for your Amazing and brilliant work! When you started his career, I even dreamed of being in this world. And today, with 16 years, I'm a huge fan of yours! I knew your work through Rocky the wrestler. I was charmed with his work. I've seen all the movies of the Rocky saga and loved. Me serves as an incentive not to give up on my dreams ... For some, are just papers actuated by you. But for me, is an example, is motivation! And know that, somehow, their work move with us. Regardless of how you mess. Simply, thank you very much dear Sylvester Stallone! "
