Did anyone remember the first ever Connex TV Add? It was some French guy (or a guy with a french accent) standing next to an Alstom Comeng saying something like "Hi, my name is Connex and i run the Melbourne trains now"?
That guy was singer/actor Harry Connick Jnr.
(ie Connick's rather than Connex).
There were 3 versions in the series, one saying they'd named it after him, another saying that "Melbourne is flat" mocking the former Hillside name, and the 3rd saying that Connex is now his favorite "track".
And it wasn't a Alstom Comeng, as they hadn't being launched at the time of filming the ad. It was simply an unrefurbished Comeng with a blue Connex logo placed over the Hillside logo.
