A supermarket shelf-stacker whose bosses ordered him to remove a name badge declaring he was "Bruce Willis" defied the ban by legally changing his name to that of the Die Hard star.

Chris Pratt, 20, is nicknamed Bruce by his chums because of his penchant for the action franchise. He explained to the Shropshire Star: “After everyone started calling me Bruce as a joke, I decided to change my name at work, and everyone including the staff and customers loved it and took it in the spirit it was intended. Unfortunately, my bosses at the supermarket didn’t find it funny and asked me to remove it from my work badge straight away.”

Pratt, who's studying media production at Northumbria University, Newcastle, when not worrying the unnamed supermarket's merchandise, ignored his employers and turned to The Legal Deed Service in Market Drayton, which transformed him overnight into an A-list box-shifter.

Willis admitted: “I am not one for losing an argument, it is ridiculous really what lengths I will go to in order to get one over on someone.”
