Kevin Hughes, chief finance and marketing officer,, commented: “Having Professor Hawking take on Gio has been an incredible experience. We were thrilled to hear he was a fan of the ads and believe his appearance will really take viewers by surprise. The ads have had a huge public reaction to date, and we think this one will really delight Gio fans.”
