LR New Zealand Valentine Ad

What a great gesture! This is the side of the marque that I miss seeing here in the States. Good on you Land Rover New Zealand!

I think that could be the greatest thing I've ever seen LR do! THAT is the kind of heritage they should have focused on! A luxury vehicle in the lineup is fine, but don't lose your identity!

I was so hoping for Will and his clients that they would do a frame swap. :-)

Amazing. Great video/ad. My wife was watching and actually teared up. She understands the connection between man and vehicle. Thanks for sharing.

We need to have the top managers of LRNZ come over to USA and show the management here how it's done.
Better still sack the current management and replace them with staff from NZ.

This video makes me miss my old 94. It made me almost cry thinking about her.
Nice commercial that captures the connection between a man and his vehicles.
