    Default R18 & R19 Adverts on ABC 2

    Anyone catch the Sergio Leone special the other day?

    Apparently when he went into semi-retirement he kept his hand in by doing ads.

    They then went on to show one for the R18 (diesel!) - breaking free of its chains in the Colosseum...then one for the R19 using their hp to tension a suspension bridge while trucks(or something?) crossed.

    It was pretty bizarre, especially complete with spaghetti western music.

    That one sounds like it would have to be pulled because of false advertising :-)

    At least it sounds a bit more interesting than the awful Australian Renault 19 TV ads or the French ones they used to show on SBS.

    You take that back

    Reminds me of the Volvo one where they ran a monster truck over it and it didn't crush while everyone elses car did. They had weakend the pilars in the other cars and the volvo was reinforced.
