Hilarious instant noodle TV ad turns 17-year-old Liverpool actor into tankini-clad superstar

"No matter what your dream, with Pot Noodle You Can Make It."

The instant noodle company's latest TV ad, "Pot Noodle: The Ring," has gone viral in the UK and beyond. 17 year old actor Michael Moran (who wears those green shorts) has become quite a star offline, too.

"I've made it," Moran told his hometown paper, The Liverpool Echo, after repeating the stunt in real life at the O2 Arena.

"There aren't many 17-year-old lads who can say they've donned a tankini in front of thousands of boxing fans."

The ad was produced by Blink Productions, directed by Nick Ball.
