John Lennon’s son Sean has defended the decision to license footage of his father for use in a car advert.
The advert for French firm Citroen sees the former Beatle ponder on “copying the past” and “looking backwards”.
Writing on micro-blogging site Twitter, Sean Lennon said the ad was “not for money” but was intended to keep his father “out there in the world”.
“Having just seen [the] ad I realize why people are mad,” he wrote. “But [the] intention was not financial.”
