    Hope they know all the rules.

    For example, not driving and talking on the cellphone simultaneously.

    Well done SPCA Well done Mini ( BMW) Smart promotion and advertising. Small cost to modify Mini but look at the exposure and feel good factor.

    Just another example of how NZ advertising is up their with the best in the world. No Im not involved in the industry but know that in certain sectors ( motor vehicles in particular) brands make and try out adverts in NZ to see the response before going global.
    If it works here they know it will work in other markets. Of course for OZ they have to dumb down the advert so the Ozzies get any jokes anything too sophisicated just goes over the Ozzies heads.

    And watch out when they decide to teach a Skye Terrier something new……………….

    Just better hope they don’t start recruiting dogs instead of people to man police cars.

    The original concept was to show a woman attempting to parallel park.
    The dogs were deemed more believable.

    A bit more training and they will drive better than some of the fuckwits on the Auckland Motorways

    Two points.

    Clearly there is a necessary height criteria for dogs to be able to drive safely.

    Then they can be designated drivers for short …… .
