Capris in TV adverts

Postby -JC- » Fri Jul 21, 2017 10:24 pm

Spotted a yellow mk1 in a Mitchum deodorant ad, a yellow Mk2 in an ad for HSBC, the Mcdonalds one with the red mk1 is still doing the rounds, and just saw this :

Hi,
Great spot! I haven't seen that ad yet, I've only seen the McDonalds one out of the adverts you've listed.

There was also a lacquer red 2.8 featured in a Jacamo ad a while ago.
On a similar note, ITV4 still use the ident with the grey Laser crashing through the boxes, and The Travel Channel have a fantastic stop motion animation featuring a Capri.

Andrew.

Not seen the HSBC ad, but have seen the others.
Saw the new Fiesta ad last night but somehow missed the Capri :whistle:

Vospers have been asking for older Fiesta models to put in their showrooms alongside the new one. My mates Supersport is being used locally :D

I nearly did too. Only caught it because I paused the ad to have a look at the mk2 fiesta
