How Bunny the whippet brought Brainiac bang up to date!

Posted on June 19, 2019

As the UK’s leading fireworks display organiser we love to be top dog. But when we hired Bunny the whippet to make a promotional video, she really did give us a run for our money!

It all started about 10 years ago in a tv show called Brainiac. Richard Hammond, of Top Gear fame, lined up one of our rockets against a flying golf ball and himself on a motorbike. The idea was to see who would win a 100 metre race. Hammond gave himself a flying start, the golf ball zoomed down the track and the rocket whooshed alongside. The rocket won by a fraction of a second.

We decided to do a re-run, this time using an Aston Martin (number plate 5 NOV), Bunny the racing whippet and our fastest new rocket, Total Wipeout.

Watch the result here. It will bring a smile to your face.
