This is the New Honda Commerci

This is the New Honda Commercial in the U.K. Go to this website and watch
this won't believe it! There are no computer graphics or
digital tricks in the film. Everything you see really happened in real time
exactly as you see it.

The film took 606 takes. On the first 605 takes, something, usually very
minor, didn't work. They would then have to set the whole thing up again.
The crew spent weeks shooting night and day.

The film cost six million dollars and took three months to complete,
including a full engineering the sequence. In addition, it's two minutes
long, so every time Honda airs the film on British television,they're
shelling out enough dough to keep any one of us in clover for a lifetime.

"free" viewings (Honda isn't paying a dime to have you watch this

When the ad was pitched to senior executives, they signed off on it
immediately without any hesitation-including the costs. There are six and
only six handmade Accords in the world. To the horror of Honda engineers,

in the film (aside from the walls, floor, ramp, and complete Honda Accord)
are parts from those two cars. When the ad was shown to Honda executives,
they liked it and commented on how amazing computer graphics have gotten.
They fell off their chairs when they found out it was for real.

Oh! And about those funky windshield wipers. On the new Accords, the
windshield wipers have water sensors and are designed to start doing their
thing automatically as soon as they become wet. It looks a bit weird in the

Just one-second of computer generation is used to link the two halves when
an exhaust pipe rolls across the floor. At one point, three tires roll
uphill because inside they have been weighted with bolts and screws.
