Panda in the Alps - Brooks Cycling Advert

Postby The Issigonis Kid » Tue Mar 03, 2015 12:08 pm

Not a cyclist so please excuse my knowledge of the subject but Brooks (saddles and cycling accessories) have used a Morris Minor in their latest advert. It's a nice picture so I thought you may enjoy.
I believe the reference of the Morris Minor is to show British Functionality. I don't know why it has to be a police car in the Alps or Overheated when going downhill but that media types for you![frame]Image[/frame]

Not the Alps - it's Chedder Gorge. (I don't get out much).

I think that Brooks owe us an apology for staging such an unlikely event.

Yes. In "The Alps" they drive on the other side of the road :wink:

Hi guys..... It's the Chedder George. I was asked if I could bring it for a photo shoot but never saw any of the finished article till now....Not to put a spoiler on things. They used a smoke bomb under the bonnet and I got paid a nice price for my attandance too.....
