Max Headroom was basically born as an advertising avatar, to promote both the new Channel Four and his own initial show. He has been used by a number of advertisers since, including a late return to Channel Four.

Data on Max's advertising appearances is incomplete, and updates and additional information are solicited!

  • Channel Four / The Max Headroom Show
The original purpose of Max was to draw attention to the UK's Channel Four and his own talk/video show thereon.
  • Radio Rentals
Max appeared in a number of television and print ads for Radio Rentals, a TV-rental service in the UK.
  • Coca-Cola
If Max is known for one thing, it's either the ABC series or the massive advertising campaign for the second rollout of "New Coke."
  • Channel Four Digital
When Channel Four switched over to digital service, they hauled Max out of cold storage and used him in a series of ads promoting the change.
