Lancashire car dealer Bowker Motor Group has flown a dog into space for a test drive in a Christmas video.
The video (watch below) features singing dogs; a flight around Preston Marina and a race with jet fighter.
The flying BMW convertible then escapes into orbit with Magnus - its chauffeur-driven Bernese Mountain Dog passenger.
The lead cast of six dogs is joined by Bowker staff in Blackburn, Preston, and Osbaldeston plus hundreds of local groups and partners.
Clitheroe’s GB Pentathlete Samantha Murray; the Sir Tom Finney Soccer Centre, PNE Community and Education Trust and Junior ‘Miss Lancashire Galaxy’ Cordelia Wood all make cameo appearances.
The video features a karaoke tribute to 80’s anthem ‘Lovin’ Every Minute of It’ by Canadian band Loverboy.
Bowker Motor Group marketing manager Amy Lancaster said: “This year’s Christmas video has been an epic collaboration and our most ambitious video project yet. Fortunately, staff and friends of the dealerships all joined forces. We couldn’t have done it without their help.
“We think the result is one of the best ever. We hope everyone enjoys it and has a wonderful Christmas.”
The video was filmed and produced by Preston-based PR agency The Buzz Factory.
