That video (without the French advert in it) was sent out to all dealers as part of the Metro launch.

I did the AV, such as it was then, for launch day/night at James Edwards on the Holt Rd in Wrexham.

Really.
The 'AV' consisted of a betamax video recorder playing into a bunch of 26" tellys with the audio through a disco mixer and speakers.

Free food and booze all night, I watched the sales team as they got the punters pissed up and signing some very dodgy deals.

Batamax and boozed-up chucky deals FTW.

Batamax? Is that the official video tape format of MacDroitwich?

Sounds like a pair of flash Czechslovakian shoes.

Great stuff Sheefag (your still an cunt mind). This is the local Bata factory - a proper Bournville/Wedgewood social masterpiece in its day.
