Amazing.  It looks like automobile makers are the frontrunners on creative advertising.

Pretty cool. Anything that shows a little creativity is good in my book. Anyone think there was just a little too much camera movement though? Hard to follow at times.

HaHa!  I was thinking the same thing.  It's a pretty cool commercial, but if I was a Honda exec, I would be pissed on wasting all that money.  I still have yet to see that commercial on TV.

I've seen it loads of times on the telly over here.

I'm still not sure how they did the bit with the three tires hitting each other while rolling up a ramp. It doesn't seem possible.

They cheated.. They put lead weights in the tires.


Also Pawbloe, the reason you haven't seen it is because you are living in the US, and this advert is for countrys who drive on the left side of the road.  Didn't you notice the orientation of the drivers seat?

And us Americans dont have the patience to watch it work, we need to see the practical uses for cars, like skidding on sand in the desert flats.


What is that name of the movie with a contraption like this?

There's been a few Rube Goldberg type machines in movies. Off the top of my head are the gate in The Goonies and the breakfast machine in Peewee's Big Adventure.

Jackass had one that failed. It's part of their deleted scenes.

This ad is most definitely a nod to the filmmakers Peter Fischli and David Weiss. Their 1987 film, "The Way Things Go" is a 30-minute-long showing of a contraption they built out of household items. (More information about the film here. To purchase the film go here.)


Anybody seen this?
