On this day in 1969, The Hollies recorded 'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother' written by Bobby Scott and Bob Russell. The ballad features Elton John on piano and originally hit No.3 then in 1988, after its use in a UK TV ad for Miller Lite, it was re-released and made No.1.

On our Facebook post, a fellow commenter said that NZ Police used the same song for one of their early 90s commercials featuring a cameo of ex-All Black and cop, John Gallagher.

Walk down memory lane and watch the commercial above.
