Diamonds Are Forever (1971)

Diamonds are Forever was the 7th of the James Bond films and Sean Connery's penultimate performance as the iconic spy.  I'm not going to go into any great length about the film it self except to say that, unsurprisingly, it has diamonds at the centre of its plot.  Diamonds that are to be used in a giant laser in a scheme orchestrated by the evil Blofeld.
And somewhere in all of this there is a scene where Bond interrupts what appears to be the faking and filming of a moon exploration before eventually nicking off with a Moon Buggy for a chase around the desert outside the moon themed hanger.
Is there a subtext here for those lunar landing sceptics or is it just a bit of fun?  I personally think it's just an excuse for a car chase with some visually unusually vehicles.
Cool or what!
