Any paper from the original release is extremely scarce and desirable, but this is an incredibly scarce Advance Teaser UK Quad design, and these rarely come up for sale. The original UK Quad film poster offered here features Elwood's (Dan Aykroyd) classic line "It's one hundred and six miles to go, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses" offset against a bold blue background. It features black caricatures of both Blues Brothers, Jake (John Belushi) and Elwood.
