In the released video, Vinnie portrayed a gangster who resuscitates an unfortunate victim. It was part of a campaign of the NHS to boost the confidence of people in order to save a life with prompt CPR. Bee Gees hit Stayin’ Alive was the soundtrack in this video.

Vinnie had earlier played the character of Big Chris in Guy Ritchie’s Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. His character was that of a hard man with a no-nonsense approach to CPR. In the video, he and his two dodgy-looking associates find a man unconscious in an empty warehouse. They start CPR on him and tell the dos and don’ts of it.

The sound and voice of the NHS advert

Vinnie is heard saying in the commercial:

“There really shouldn’t be any messing about when it comes to CPR. If you’re worried about the kiss of life just forget it and push hard and fast in the centre of the chest to Stayin’ Alive.

“Hands-only CPR should give have-a-go heroes the confidence to step in and help when somebody is in cardiac arrest.”

The Charity British Heart Foundation was the first to say that just do CPR at the same rate as the Bee Gees disco classic. They further state to ignore the ‘kiss of life’. New research has revealed that continuous compressions at 110 to 120 beats per minute are more effective and beneficial in revival than attempting CPR with a poor kiss of life technique.
