Video: Stephen Hawking sucks opera singer into black hole

By Anne Sewell     Jan 1, 2013 in World
Famous people are often asked to star in ads, but would you believe that Stephen Hawking chose to star in an auto insurance ad? And not only that, even end the ad with an evil chuckle?
The famous mind and renowned scientist, 70-year-old Professor Stephen Hawking, recently appeared in Go Compare's online auto-insurance comparison service.
The Go Compare ads have long featured "Gio Compario", a rather portly opera singer, who urges people to "go compare" auto insurance rates.
While Hawking is apparently fond of opera, it seems he might find the Gio Compario character a tad annoying.
He told the Daily Mail: "I confess I am a fan of the Gocompare.com adverts, but I am also an opera fan, so I was delighted to be given the opportunity to help save the nation and silence Gio."
It seems the professor is in good company, as he joins survival expert Ray Mears and TV presenter Sue Barker, who also featured in ads, plotting to destroy the opera singer and silence him for good.
And you have to love that evil chuckle, right at the end!
