One person we could never picture as a Trekkie is Britpop god Noel Gallagher. But since leaving Oasis, the singer is in line for a big-bucks marketing campaign.
He is joining the latest celeb-filled adidas commercial, hilariously dressed as a Star Trek character.
A source told us: “The advert has been shot in two parts; the first part is a rooftop party similar to the house party' themed adidas advert from last year, and the second part is based around a famous Star Trek scene.”
David Beckham, 34, also dressed as a Star Trek character before being placed in front of a green screen to re-enact a scene from the sci-fi franchise.
Last year's “house party” adidas ad featured Beckham, Katy Perry, Missy Elliott, Estelle, Run DMC and The Ting Tings among others, and this year's promises to be even more celebtastic with stars from music, sport and fashion.
Noel, 42, who left Oasis last month citing “irreconcilable differences”, will no doubt be in line for a string of abuse from his brother and former bandmate Liam for donning the nerdy outfit.
The ad was shot in the West End last week. Our source added: “The filming was a lot of fun, and should be aired in the next month or so.”
Meanwhile, if Noel is looking for extra work, he has been offered another pay cheque by Razorlight.
Swedish guitarist Bjorn Agren said: “Maybe we should get Noel to produce the new Razorlight album? We're looking for a producer, and we need a little Northerner cred.”
