Actor in swine-flu PSA falls ill with swine flu


The actor who fake-sneezes his way through a gross U.K. Department of Health swine-flu advisory (posted below) has himself been stricken with the swine flu. "I was supposed to 'Catch it. Bin it. Kill it,' " says David McCusker, above, referring to the U.K. swine-flu tagline. "But instead I've been shivering, shaking and spreading it." McCusker, 30, quarantined himself upon getting the diagnosis, for health reasons and perhaps also due to embarrassment. "I've been getting lots of stick from mates," he admits.
