Hank Marvin mean Starving in Cockney Rhyming Slang

Often Cockney Rhyming Slang is used in advertising. Here’s a poster we saw in a London street, which uses the CRS “Hank Marvin”. The poster offers no translation so obviously the advertisers know that everybody knows that Hank Marvin means Starving in Cockney Rhyming Slang. Nice one Mattessons!
