Beaurepaires is an Australian and New Zealand tyre retail and repair chain started in 1922 by Frank Beaurepaire a former Olympic swimmer for Australia and Australasia, with money he received for rescuing a shark attack victim from the water at Sydney.[citation needed]

The New Zealand chain is also noted for TV commercials with actor Vince Martin for more than 25 years, particularly the (singing) Christmas commercials and the simplistic "This is a spoon" advert.[1]
