LONDON, Sept. 21, 2007 -- When Australian film star Kenny Smyth and Denise van Outen arrive at the premiere of Kenny in Leicester Square on Wednesday, Sept. 26, it will not be by chauffeured Rolls-Royce -- it will be in an all-terrain Mercedes-Benz Unimog hauling a giant 'poo' tanker.

Kenny is all about a 'knight in shining overalls' who delivers mobile loos wherever they are needed, as well as getting stuck into the less pleasant aspects of the job: and the film has been a sensation in Australia where it was filmed.

What more fitting way for the star and his glamorous girlfriend to arrive at the UK premiere than in the shining, steel grey Mercedes-Benz Unimog used by A1 Mobile to deliver portable toilets and haul vacuum tanks to Britain's biggest festivals and smallest fetes. A1's owner Richard Cave -- who also operates portable toilet businesses in Australia -- says that the Kenny movie will raise the profile of the waste industry.

"It's a hilarious film. Kenny is a wonderful spoof about a down-home, country-type guy with all the normal personal and emotional problems -- and a few more. He just happens to earn his living providing one of life's most basic services," Richard says from his Nottinghamshire-based operation.

Richard Cave's new Unimog U400 has been liveried and equipped for maximum visual effect, with high visibility lights and a stylish metallic silver body. But it also has a serious purpose: with the Unimog's power and all-terrain ability making it the ideal haulage truck to take the 3,000-gallon vacuum tanker direct to the remote toilet units on event and construction sites, no matter what the weather conditions are.
