“James Bond Festival”: Magazine ad for VHS rental cassettes (1983)

In 1983 Metronome Video inserted this advert in Danish weekly magazines to announce the fact that seven of the EON James Bond 007 films were available as VHS rental cassettes in Denmark.

The Bond films were not issued on VHS in chronological order. By 1983, the rental series included Sean Connery's first three Bond films as well as the two first and (at the time) two latest with Roger Moore.

“Tomorrow Never Dies”: Ericsson cell phone ad (1997)

In 1997 Pierce Brosnan appeared in this Danish print ad campaign for Ericsson's JB988 cell phone as used by James Bond 007 in "Tomorrow Never Dies" (EON Productions).

The Danish text reads:

Now James Bond strikes again. Smarter, faster and better than ever before. He still drives the nicest car. He is still surrounded by the most gorgeous women. But his weapon is brand new: The ultimate cell phone from Ericsson, developed specially and exclusively for Agent 007. With it, he can transfer top secret data and overcome even the most hopeless situations.
