Clever BA Advert

This is clever.  Enter your postcode and watch the BA ad.  During the ad you will see the plane taxiing down your own road.

Re: Clever BA Advert

Not long after BT started to show this advert with it plane travelling by road from Heathrow to the centre of London cracks appeared in a section of the M4. The Roads Agency was forced to close that section of the M4 for repairs!
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

When I tried it a couple of weeks ago just got grey background.
Today it worked.

@journeys, I wonder if your non UK IP address is the problem Undecided

Re: Clever BA Advert

Nope.... actually , just done a rerun to double check... and it looks like the view of the plane was taken from my front room looking out into the street, to see the plane passing !...

Re: Clever BA Advert

Very cool, I saw my old car in there too  Smiley I broke it up a couple of years ago and always felt a bit guilty for doing so (it was a reliable old dog bug needed £££ for the MOT). Nice to see it again like that lol.
Weirdly, google images caught a ghost image of the car engine being lifted out by a crane on my drive which is rather weird as the photo was taken by google the year before  Huh
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
