Drawing on your more emotions
« on: January 11, 2019, 12:23 AM »
Lloyd sent me two video clips involving the nostalgia of the land rovers that we so love dearly, and I thought it would be nice to share with all of you.   This first one you'll all get...

Land Rover 70th Anniversary l Dorothy Peters


Now these next two videos....both put out by Land Rover.  Tell me, which video draws your attention more?   Which video pulls more on your emotions...?
1.
OR
2. 

Which will be remembered 20 years from now ;)

Cheers, Bill

This is my take away.

First video, quite sad. A very sweet,  English lady recounting her memorys of working at a factory building Land Rovers that will now be outsourced by the modern JLR to another country.

Second Video, everything modern Land Rovers are not. The pride those chaps have in their vehicles is well earned and is never something that can be attained by the modern “style over substance” line up.

Third video, ironic. Bunch of guys in new Land Rovers, packed with modern tech paying zero attention to their cars and fawning over all the old Land Rovers and how great they are!

If you needed a reminder of just how much Land Rover have left behind in their relentless pursuit of the luxury market this should do it.
