John Lennon’s son defends decision to use father’s footage in car ad

Posted on: March 6, 2010

John Lennon’s son Sean has said there is nothing wrong in the use of his father’s footage in a car advert.

The late Beatles member features in an advert for French firm Citroen, pondering on “copying the past” and “looking backwards”.

Many have condemned Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono for using the interview footage for commercial purpose.

However, the music legend’s son has clarified that it was instead an effort to keep his father in people’s memory.

Sean Tweeted, the ad was “not for money” but was supposed to keep his father “out there in the world”.

“Having just seen [the] ad I realize why people are mad. But [the] intention was not financial,” the BBC quoted him as stating.

Sean also added his mother was just “hoping to keep dad in [the] public consciousness”.

He explained that the Citroen DS3 commercial meant allowing the status of his father an “exposure to [the] young.”

Meanwhile, the car company said Lennon had been chosen for his “universal, timeless and iconic status”.
