Solo Man’s shocking downfall


Solo Man Mark Coutelas was charged in Cambodia with using and selling the drug ice just three years after being jailed in Thailand.

THE downward spiral continues for the star of one of Australia’s most iconic advertisements as police charged the Solo Man with using and selling the drug ice.

Mark Robert Coutelas was once the most famous face in Australian advertising. His canoeing skills off the edge of cliffs and action man antics sparked a love for the lemon drink all the way back to 1986.

Solo Man and his never-ending man-sized thirst represented everything that was powerful, masculine and good.

The ad, of which a cool, moustached Coutelas appears, demands you to “slam them down fast”.

But now, the 57-year-old’s taste has changed and has appeared to have swapped soft drink for a darker vice — ice — and has been described as a “gun-toting tourist”.
