Mick Jagger won't find out?
Jagger back in prison clothes
Sir Mick Jagger is the unwitting star of an advertising campaign for a range of clothing made by prison inmates.
A German company is using the Rolling Stone's image alongside a rogue's gallery of famous crooks.
It's because of his 1967 drugs conviction which landed him with a three month jail sentence that was later overturned on appeal.
Stephan Bohle, an advertising executive for the Haeftling - German for jailbird - line of clothing, said: "We only chose one contempory criminal for the current campaign, and he was British.
"We don't want to say what his name is but he is a celebrity who served time in jail. We didn't ask him for permission - we hope he wont find out! We are not planning to take the campaign to England and he is British, so we dont think he will mind."
