    great commercial, first year Scout, great find.

    I'm wondering if this is/was a US commercial, or a commercial for a foreign country?

    On the US side, the announcer mentions "miles per hour" and engine power measured in 'HP".

    On the foreign side, we are shown a right hand side drive vehicle (which I guess isn't uncommon for US Scouts), but it also shows the driver, driving on the left hand side of the road and passing another vehicle on the right.

    Not meaning to turn this into a great mystery, but if anyone has a background for the commercial, or more data, I'm certainly interested.

    With some of the scenery, I wonder if this was for the Australian market. The front tag was like Aussie tags I have seen before, and I think that they drive on the left like their parent nation the UK.

    The video description does say it aired in Australia, so it looks like you are correct.
