Classic comedy car caper

A famous comedy double act are the stars of the classic advert below as they deliver a hilarious sketch to promote cars for British Leyland’s selection of Austin Morris models.

The Two Ronnies steal the show in “The Great Range” advert from 1979 that features Ronnie Corbett as a criminal on the run and Ronnie Barker as a salesman showing off the latest Mini, Allegro, Marina, Maxi and Princess vehicles.

They deliver gags at a rapid pace throughout the commercial before going for a test drive when they are pulled over by police officer hunting the conman.
