Morrisons - 13-May-2010

I’m sure many of you have seen the latest Morrison’s commercial showing Top Gear’s Richard Hammond pushing his shopping trolley through various  rural locations. We werent involved in every scene but the one scene we did work on is the part where he’s in the rain pulling his trolley across a cattle grid.

That 10 seconds of footage took all day to film and for us, getting to the location proved to be a bit of a nightmare. The 10,ooo litre water tanker almost didnt make it to the top of the hill, it struggled even in 1st gear but eventually, inch by inch, I managed to get it there.

Richard Hammond proved to bit a good sport when it came to getting wet, and despite the cold wind and numerous takes, he didnt moan once.

Looking at the footage, i’m very pleased with the final result as i think the rain looks pretty good!
