We’re almost positive that any die hard BMW fans remembers the famous series “The Hire”. Averaging about ten minutes each, The Hire was a series of eight short films produced for the internet viewing from 2001 to 2002. A form of branded content, all eight films featured popular filmmakers from across the globe, starred Clive Owen as the “Driver”, and highlighted the performance aspects of various BMW automobiles.

The plots of each of the films differ, but one constant remains: Clive Owen plays “The Driver”, a man who goes from place to place (in presumably rented BMW automobiles), getting hired by various people to be a sort of transport for their vital needs.

Well, if you like the series, then you will definitely enjoy this new video produced by Bandito’s Garage, a media company that creates, produces, manages and distributes audio-visual content.


BMW “Living in the Lights” video was produced by Creator/Director, “Mouse” McCoy, the Driver is Greg Tracy and the beautiful lady, Niki Huey. Their website is quite mysterious, the Garage page, gives a sneak preview of the video and what it seems to be more upcoming content. We have reached to the company for more information and we’ll share it with you when available.

  • badger

    nice video,
    except what the hell was the girl doing?

  • Jeremy

    She paid him for a ride. I want to be an M3-Ride-Ho!

  • BmwM5Fan

    why they decided to add v10 noise to the car? is that car reallly with a v10?

    • Elio

      I don’t think they have, the V8 sounds very similar to the V10. That car is sex and that video is like a dream.

      • BmwM5Fan

        no offence, in my opinion they are completely different

  • daniel

  • JM

    cool, see more on M3 at here

  • c.o

    yea baby :)

  • Edwin

    The song in the back is called ‘Gun’ by Emiliana Torrini.

  • Artmic

    I dont’ mind the video, but adding the woman to it, made it too cliche.

    • jon H

      I agree.

    • Martin

      Right. The vid is cheesy as hell. I mean this is one of the best cars in the world, it is made for driving pleasure and not to impress hookers…

      • Nathan McDaniel

        Lol! The girl paid for the ‘ride’ – hookers get paid, they don’t pay.

  • daniel

    edwin tnx for song name ;)

  • Hantra

    I know I’m going to be ostracized for saying this, but what really stood out to me, besides the girl, was the incredibly obvious orange peel in the logo shot. It’s just sad.

  • lennardt

    watching it the 5th time, i recognized the girl the first time ;-)
    very nice video!

  • CB

    Ditch the girl.
