Wear a Helmet / Flame Fortune / Molly / Michael Hutchence / 80s
One of my favourite ad's from the 80s was the 'Bike Right' campaign, surprisingly not on youtube. It featured a pin legged lass riding her beach cruiser in the dark with her reflector badges, flag and safety jacket all flying on to her bike Tron style with the stock standard 80s voiceover man stating the obvious "Wheel, pedal reflectors"ect. The best.
Another great campaign in this series from the RTA was the 'Wear a Helmet' commercial featuring the King of Moomba 2009. Apart from Molly, the colours, the incredible animation, the soundtrack is a particular highlight. Interestingly not an original score for the commercial but a sans lyrical version of 'Sex Symbol' by Flame Fortune and produced by Michael Hutchence.
Helmets have never sounded so good. Enjoy!
