Cigars Advert

Ford Anglia 105E at the Movies

World Cup Panama Cigars Advert - 1980

Not really a movie, but an Advert promoting Panama Slim Panatella Cigars. This iconic advert shows a man adding wide wheels to his Ford Anglia and then trying to drive it through a narrow gateway.

Through the mists of time, most people believe this advert was for Hamlet Cigars as the advert had a similar theme to those from Benson and Hedges.
