In anticipation of the London 2012 Olympic Games, MINI has released a short film which lovingly parodies the 1969 classic, The Italian Job.

Humorously titled, The Britalian Job, the film features British sporting legends as they attempt to track down the perpetrator of a fictional night-time heist. In an effort to emulate the famous car chase scenes of the original film, The Britalian Job includes stunts performed with London 2012 special edition MINIs with famous London landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament and Knightsbridge as its backdrop.

The Britalian Job was directed by Top Gear's Phil Churchward and also features the stunt choreography of Paul Swift, a British driver best known for precision driving and his multiple Guinness World Records.
