MINI's 'Britalian Job' Touts British Paralympics
Today MINI released a London 2012-themed film which gives a nod to the 1969 classic, the Italian Job. The film, created to tout MINI's partnership with Team GB and ParalympicsGB, features British sporting legends as they attempt to track down the perpetrator of a night-time heist.
Directed by Phil Churchward, the lead director on BBC's Top Gear, the film includes stunts performed in red, white and blue London 2012 special edition MINIs alongside some of the country's most iconic landmarks including the Houses of Parliament and Knightsbridge.
The film features several references to the original movie, including MINIs emerging from the same Park Lane basement as used in the 1969 classic, traversing down the Duke of York Steps off the Mall, and a chase through London's stunning Leadenhall market.
The film climaxes with a final stunt in which the three MINIs perform a ten metre jump in close formation in front of the Olympic Stadium.
