Best Potential Music Endorsement EVER!

Pogues - Shane McGowan teeth

This is Shane McGown of the Pogues.  The man is an oral hygiene nightmare.  In the entire volume of The Big Book of British Smiles, it doesn’t get any worse.  His breath must be Bhopal toxic.

To his credit, though, Shane has finally decided to do something about all that rot in his mouth.  He’s launched a search for a dentist who can fix him up so he can–wait for it–start an acting career.

Shane’s been wearing dentures since 2009 but isn’t very pleased with them.  That’s why he’s launched an appeal on Twitter to find a dentist/oral surgeon/miracle worker to fix things once and for all.  In exchange for the work–which will probably cost upwards of $100,000 (seriously!), Shane has promised that he will front an advertising campaign for that dentist.

If I’m in the teeth-fixing business, I’d think about this very careful.  I mean, if you can prove that you can fix this mess, you gotta be good right?
