When the film "Viva Las Vegas" came out in the biggest theater in Brussels, there was a Honda in the lobby and if I remember well, you could win it. I don't know if this was only in Brussels or in other Belgian cities, like Antwerp, as well.

as Charlie steps outside the Tea House, three college students follow him - Charlie starts to get on his motorcycle
College boy in gray sweater: Is that your sickle?
Charlie Rogers: You ought to stop reading those hot rod magazines, buddy. Sickle is out, it's either a bike or a motorcycle.
College boy in suit and tie: Made in Japan, huh?
Charlie Rogers: That's right, made in Japan.

College boy in suit and tie: No, no! That's karate!
Charlie Rogers: That goes with the sickle! Come on!
