‘The Great Range’ 1979 Advert

I discovered this little gem recently: Two Ronnies 1979 Advert

ad1

It’s a 1979 advert for Austin Morris cars and features both Ronnies in a very typical sketch. If you’ve not seen it before, it’s well worth a watch.

Showing off the new Austin Morris cars of the time (Mini, Marina, Maxi etc) it ends with both Ronnie’s on a test drive being pulled over by a police officer.

Interestingly, the red Austin Princess that both Ronnies are seen driving towards the end was last taxed in 1990 – so it lived on long after the advert was made.

Very little is known about the advert – do you know where it was filmed? Get in touch if you do!
