Referring to the previous post.... I was just walking up the hall in my flat when I heard Heath as Ennis telling Jack at the end of their time on the mountain that he might see him sometime........ on an advert on my TV.


Huh? You tellin' me Focus has sold the rights to use these lines in advertising? This seems absolutely remarkable and somewhat disturbing. To paraphrase a famous line: "Tell ME It Ain't So Tom!". Do you remember what the advert was for? Was it a consumer product or some kind of public service type announcement?

No , it wasn't for a product mate. It was advertising the showing of BBM as part of an outdoor screening of a number of movies in London this August.  Sorry for any confusion. I wasn't paying attention to the ad, I was just walking up the hall in my flat and heard Ennis's voice.   :\'(
