A-Team Blu-ray Mohawk Deal

Sunday, 21 November 2010 13:37

Thanks to all-action hardman BA Baracus in The A-Team and a whole host of manly celebrities, from Jared Leto to David Beckham, more and more British men are getting Mo’d up, as ‘the Hawk’ makes its mark as one of the styles for 2011. Made famous in the 1980s by Mr T in the original A-Team series, it has taken ‘Mr E’, sopecifically the newly crowned “Mr England” Vaughan Bailey, to re-launch the funky cut, inspired by the new film version of The A-Team.

Bailey, who was crowned Mr England in September, went from Hobo to Hunk, having been plucked from a life on the streets to be crowned Mr England, and cites BA Baracus as one of his inspirations. Now he is fronting the campaign with celebrity groomer Jason Shankey, who is offering free Mohawks to anyone feeling manly enough to ask for a ‘BA’ on Friday 26 November 2010.

Mr England - Vaughan Bailey - Getting a Free Mohawk and you can too!All those who take up the offer will also be rewarded with £5.00 off the A-Team on Blu-ray when it is released on Monday 29 November 2010. Jason, whose Fulham salon sees some of London’s coolest celebrities through its doors in London’s most happening district, has seen a huge rise in the demand for Mohawks this year.

Mr Shankey noted: “The Mohawk is one of those iconic hair cuts that keeps coming back and I have noticed a massive resurgence particularly in the last few months with clients asking for a number of variations of the style.

“I’d go as far as to say that it is currently one of our most popular cuts for guys under the age of 25! The A-Team and BA have certainly had a huge influence on this as well as the likes of David Beckham and Orlando Bloom, who continually revert back to the look.  The hairstyle is sharp, short and decidedly masculine which is why it is such a top trend especially with our sporting heroes!”

Mr England cites how BA Baracus was his personal inspiration: “As a young boy growing up in poverty, The A-Team was the ultimate escapism and BA has always been an inspiration for his all-action, no nonsense attitude and cool image, which has been brought to the 21st Century in the new film.

“As a Mr Universe candidate I have to be at the forefront of fashion, and I’m pleased to be leading the way with a Mohawk!”

Mr England himself will be personally styled by Jason Shankey at his Fulham salon at 10.00am on Wednesday 24 November 2010. Shankey, an Irish-born entrepreneur, hairdresser and grooming expert has opened “Jason Shankey London” in Jerden Place. Marketing is everything, and this new venue is described as “a new generation gentlemen’s club offering a full range of premium styling, grooming and lifestyle services exclusively for men”. 

The original “Jason Shankey Club” opened in Belfast in 1997. Shankey was a former finalist in the UK “male grooming salon of the year” and this may be one of many new openings across the UK in the months to come.

Men who take up the offer from Jason Shankey’s and get a free Mohawk on Friday 26 November 2010 will receive a code, in-salon, that will qualify them for £5.00 off The A-Team on Blu-ray when it is released next week.

The A-Team Blu-ray - Get a Free Mohawk and save a Fiver on it

This ‘reimagining’ benefits from having original creator Stephen J Cannell co-helming the controls as a Producer, and stars Liam Neeson as Hannibal (George Peppard’s role), Bradley Cooper (The Hangover), Sharlto Copley as Murdock (the Dwight Schultz role), and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson takes over from Mr T as BA. Much like the original, but starting from their origin story, the quartet are convicted by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit, and they must utilise their unique talents to break out of prison and tackle their toughest mission yet.

The DVD extras include the following:

  • Extended Cut
  • Theatrical Version
  • Audio Commentary with Joe Carnahan
  • A-Team Theme Mash-Up Montage

The Blu-ray adds to these extras with the following:

  • “The Devil is in the Details” - Inside the Action with Joe Carnahan
  • Never-before-seen Deleted Scenes
  • Gag Reel
  • “Plan of Attack”
  • “Character Chronicles” - Liam Neeson; Bradley Cooper; Rampage Jackson; Sharlto Copley; Jessica Biel
  • Visual Effects Commentary with Visual Effects Supervisor James E Price
  • Digital Copy “How To”
  • BD-Live Extras – “What’s New”; “Live Lookup”

Released by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, the Blu-ray edition includes the Blu-ray disc, the DVD and a Digital Copy for your portable viewing device, a ‘15’ certificate and a RRP of £24.99. The DVD gets a ‘12’ certificate (meaning the Blu-ray extras are more adult than the movie!), and a RRP of £19.99. You can get either version for less at www.culttvstore.com
