The new Mini Cabrio commercials are great, the Mini doesn't mind any rain and should you dare to cover up during the rain you will be slapped. This commercial for the Mini titled "history" sees people enjoying a drive through history, rom the Roman Ages, through the Middle Ages to the present days who as the song song in the commercial says we don't mind no rain. Mini Cabrio Always Open.

Never put the roof up in your new Mini Cabrio is the claim in the second of Mini's advertising campaign, or the Ninja dudes will get you.

Credits for the spot to follow, if anyone beats me to it please post them in the comments.

  6. For the always open ad, was that song specially composed for that ad or is it an actual song - if so, by whom?

  8. I am almost 100% certain that the location on the "rain" spot when they drive by the Gothic buildings in the motorcycle with sidecar is the University College building at the University of Toronto.
