It's a commercial not a training video. I don't think you are selling a basic tactics qualification along side your trucks so who cares. Its just fun, maybe nostalgic, for those who have a tactical background to criticize these little things because thats what we did back in the day.
Well if the commercial is just for FUN then so is the dissection of the commercial. I do have some questions. Why is the 10th Mountain performing vehicle extractions for SF in the steaming jungles of Whaddafakistan? Uh, what was up with that only ONE guy on patrol decides that head protection this combat mission is necessary. Maverick has apparently devol'ed out of aviation and qualified for SpecWar, which one was Goose or was he replaced by Beaver? Did the one minute warning mean "Prepare to move over for a bunch of other guys to ride in the back in ONE MINUTE!"?

I do like the fantasy ending "Can you guys customize my Land Rover?" because THATS what allot of guys who want a Defender are all dreaming about ... tooling around in the jungle south of Charleston with super bling rims, SVX lights, orange sparkle hoods in very-too-much pimp war-paint for extra special urban missions, yo! Still its silly good fun.

Look, I just want more videos of Rovers and chicks, together...doing stuff. If Himalaya can deliver that, then good on him. He's got a head start on Lucky8, who is still stuck in 30 second video, but has so much potential for video greatness.

As long as there was one devol'ed 10th Mountain aviator in the group it should be fine. Like this guy, last seen on a top secret mission for Himalaya involving wheel spacers:

I didn't notice all the military stuff til you guys pointed em out. All in all, I like this video. Shows these bad ass Tithonus 110s in a great location. Reminds me of when I was an extra playing special forces on Army Wives.

I'm going to guess YES because of the Kahn wheels used as well.

Seriously how small of penis + daddy's credit card do you have to have to even slightly consider one of these rigs! If you are going to slaughter something in poor taste let it be an H1! This is a workings mans rig....if you need to buy an image find another rig like a Volvo!

hey now, we all could be wrong, maybe they quickly detach from the vehicle somehow and can be thrown on the ground for traction aid, or act as a buffer between the 22's and the mall curb. But there shouldn't be a chance of hitting the curb because of the ultra high visibility tacticool roof.

I do quite like the contrast of the matte green and the gloss black with the white LED's though.

They list for 2500 GBP so they better be more than just plastic.

Remember the audience for khan is the wanna be gangster or more money than sense brigade. It could be made of paper and they'd still buy it. Actually apart from the rear 'vents' I quite like them.
