Yesterday evening I was watching TLD (again) and I noticed in the pre-title sequence when James Bond is wrestling with the other guy in the Land Rover that when they come to the point where they almost run into a passenger-car, the Land Rover hits the food and drink stand. On the umbrella's and the stand itself is written in very large letters: "JB"
I think this are the letters from "J"ames "B"ond.
If anyone has another opinion on this please let me know

Yup, that's right, James. That's something I spotted one of the first times I watched it.

Bond? Launch a beachclub though? Nah... :)

As far as I know, it actually says "J & B's" which is an alcoholic drink. I've seen it behind bars before. Bars in pubs - not prison!LOL!

Yep, J&B Scotch Whisky. Another one of those product placement exercises.

At least in this case the initials are relevant.
