Launch ad for Sky Movies 007 HD channel [video]

Sky Movies has released a video advertising the new “007 HD” channel to be launched next month. It seamlessly cuts together all the Bond actors in a driving sequence that relegates Timothy Dalton to being the hapless truck driver from the opening of Quantum of Solace (perhaps they should have had him for real); and if you thought it was Blofeld who machine gunned down George Lazenby’s Aston Martin at the end of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service then think again.

It’s an excellent advert for the new channel and even if you’re unable to get the channel the video is worth a look – it certainly made me chuckle. My only question is this: since it is advertising an HD channel, why is the video not HD?

David Leigh founded The James Bond Dossier in 2002. A fan of 007 since the age of 8, he is also author of The Complete Guide to the Drinks of James Bond. You can order a copy here if you don't own it already.
