Leading van brand, Maxi-CUBE, overnight made a cameo appearance on Channel Nine’s reality TV series, “The Block Sky High”. The episode, which aired at 7pm on Tuesday 25th June, featured two former contestants driving billy carts out of a Maxi-CUBE van, issuing a challenge to the Sky High contestants.
The two former contestants, Mike and Andrew, were last seen on the 2012 series of the show, when their South Melbourne terrace sold for a whopping $1,400,001.01. The pair pocketed $434,001.01 prize money between them and returned in spectacular style as they drove their two billy carts down a ramp out the back doors of the stationary Maxi-CUBE. The pair revealed that their appearance was in order to issue a challenge to the current crop of contestants – to build and race a billy cart.
While an audience of 1.191 million viewers tuned in to see the episode last night, Maxi-CUBE is certainly no stranger to the screen. The brand also appeared in the 2011 Hollywood film “Killer Elite”, starring Jason Statham, Clive Owen and Robert De Niro, in which a 1970s model Maxi-CUBE was used in a high octane action sequence shot partly on Melbourne roads.
