Now the full 90 second version

https://youtu.be/YOAh4cj0iCI

This is the full 90 second version of "The Graduate " launch advert.

It was only shown once, in the commercial break during Coronation Street, due to cost. The usual ad shown was still long at 60 seconds.

It'll be OK as long as you don't turn in on a trailing throttle, especially not in a 180K+ mile 214GSi with perished tyres on the A537 between Macclesfield and Buxton...

It's been dormant. A combination of getting vids digitised and remembering how to log in :blushing

Carl Martin set it up orginally.

Some more still to come :cool

Did you do these John, off master tapes? Have they been digitally restored to some degree? - they're pretty good quality (I notice the audio has been cleaned up a lot... or replaced with the actual song recording).

A friend did these from the original tapes using a TV card in his PC. I believe it's the sound from the tape.
