Dublin Bus
Stefan Baguette found himself in an Irish pub in Germany on the evening of the 2003 Eurovision Song Contest: "They showed the RTÉ coverage of the event, which included an advert for
Dublin Bus. If I remember correctly, several buses appeared, including an AV-class Volvo B7TL/Alexander in City Swift livery with its DMD set for 'City Centre / An Lár'."

A woman sees the colour she wants for her paint in a man's coat sitting on a bus. The exterior of the bus is a Colchester Leyland Atlantean/Eastern Coachworks, but the engine on the soundtrack isn't, in fact this advert is a real bitsa; The interior appears to be a Bristol Lodekka FLF! (thanks Andy Richards). Mike Castiglione disagrees: "the interior is definitely CBT ECW Atlantean (yes they were that primitive) and I'm pretty certain the engine is genuine Atlantean too."
