Warwick Capper Wants to Sue Nando’s For Using His Image Without Permission

Every now and again a story comes along that makes you smile. This isn’t one of them. In fact, this story is one of disbelief than anything else.

It seems former AFL player Warwick Capper wants to sue fast food chain Nando’s for almost $300,000 for using his image without permission in an ad campaign.

Capper, 52, claims that no-one notified him to ask whether he approved his image to be used the cheeky ad campaign.

Nando’s has admitted fault and offered to compensate Capper $10,000, which unfortunately falls short of his initial asking price of $300,000.

The ad that upset Warwick Capper

Now don’t get me wrong- I totally agree that Warwick should’ve been asked for his approval for his image to appear in the Nando’s ads. I mean he may have had hundreds, or even thousands of other images he would’ve preferred to be front and centre of the campaign. Like this one-


But what I do find hard to reconcile in my head is that Warwick Capper compares himself to Michael Jordan. He says this case is very similar to when Michael Jordan received a $US8.9 million settlement with a supermarket chain that used his name without permission.

“I think I’ve helped their products (Nando’s) sell immensely and not to be compensated is a kick in the face really.” Capper said. “I’m the Michael Jordan of Australia,” he continued. Let’s be honest, I am a bigger name than Jordan, I can jump higher and I’m much better looking,” Capper reportedly said.

See, wearing too tight shorts for most of the 80’s does have long term effects!
