If you have been out and about in Hackney lately, you might have spotted a hapless celebrity photographer trying, and failing, to spot any famous faces on our streets.

If so, then you might be excited to learn – as the team at Specsavers Hackney were – that it was all in aid of a new TV advert for Specsavers.

Mistaken identity

The advert, starring short-sighted paparazzi Jason Shutter, saw him chase a jogger through the park thinking he was a famous movie star. Not a good day at the office.

And the team at the Mare Street store would like to remind you that, whatever you do for a living, regular eye tests are really important.

Book an eye test

Jayesh Maru, store director in Hackney, said: ‘While most of us do not rely on our ability to spot a celebrity at a distance to earn a living, good eyesight is vital to help all of us live fulfilling lives.

'So if you have not had a test for a while, do not be like Jason Shutter. Book one online today.’
