Actually it was 1980 that this ad was on air

The script called for a closer shot of the french waitress's 'chest' at the moment the guy says "I've never been down that far" but back in those days (1980) that was pushing it too far. Leslie.

Hi my name is Leslie Walters, I wrote this commercial as a young copywriter at Colenso wellington. In fact it was my first-ever tv commercial! How exciting to see it here after all these years. Wed Jun 27 14:28:41 2012


This ad made a lot more sense to me after I visited Huka Falls.
