Rover 600 - Infamous Rover 600 commercial

Someone was talking about this at work the other day, and it sparked my memory of the minor furore at the time.

An Infamous Rover 600 commercial from 1997, which somehow got passed by ASA, before being hastily withdrawn after a public outcry.

In light of historical events since then, its even worse.

Agreed, they'd never get it passed now unless the exchanged hostage wore a seatbelt.

And no DRL's, think of the camels that could have been injured if they hadn't seen the car.
