  • Short Summary

    The clever thing is a canoe sidecar on a motorbike, the cute thing is a pet parrot.

  • Description

    "Not even floods can stop some Eves from motorcycling - especially when they have this novel sidecar canoe."

    M/S of two women driving away from the camera in a strange motorcycle and sidecar contraption. The vehicle is driven through some floods. M/S of the method of transport at a standstill. Woman gets out of the canoe and the two unstrap it from the side of the motorcycle.

    "When the water gets too deep or a river interferes, just unhitch your sidecar and canoe it!" The canoe is pushed into the water and the two women row off. Floodwater surrounds many houses.

    "For quaintness this tame parrot would need some beating - as a pal." Man in a suit walks along a city street with his pet parrot walking along beside him. The man walks along with the parrot perched on his head. C/U of the man and his parrot. It could be Piccadilly Circus. "A real, but unusual pet." The parrot sits inside the man's little briefcase. The man walks off.
