Vintage Mini BMC Commercial
"This commercial shows all the different people who enjoy and drive Minis. First is a sort of lumberjack-looking guy (they have those in Australia?) followed by a young flower girl going to a wedding and a very well-to-do older woman who has her chauffeur follow her as she drives so he can open her door when they arrive. This cheeky ad is quintessentially Mini."

Original Morris Mini Minor Commercial (1959)
Quote from the comments:-
Interesting to see it is left hand drive on UK plates. The street scene looks British and it is driving on the left hand side of the road. However, the voice over refers to the "trunk" but in Britain we refer to it as the "boot".

Vintage Animated Mini Car Commercial
"This ad pits a Mini against a fire breathing Italian supercar of the period. The nimble mini easily outruns the dramatic sportscar through twisty roads and even threads the needle between two outsize elephants, while the supercar gets stuck leaving the driver stranded. The Mini driver then shows off the practicality of his car by loading countless racing trophies into the trunk."
