Mike Dawes as Earl the CGI pensioner!

In October Mike Dawes was commissioned to compose and perform a guitar battle for a TV advertisement campaign by Wonga. He performed the music with Ben Lapps. In the advert Ben appears as himself and Mike appears as a CGI pensioner named Earl.

“It was a great experience, heaps of fun and a great platform to get music out there to a mainstream audience. Check out the fantastically accurate replication of my guitar!” The ad is out today.
