This is very cool.... Read the article first, then click to see the



And you thought those people that set up roomfulls of dominos to

knock over were amazing...

There are no computer graphics or digital tricks in this 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.

By the time it was over, they were ready to change professions!

The film cost six million dollars and took three months to complete

including full engineering of the sequence.  In addition, it's two minutes


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.

However, it is fast becoming the most downloaded advertisement in

Internet history.

Honda  executives figure the ad will soon pay for itself simply in

"free viewings"

(Honda isn't paying a dime to have you watch this commercial!).

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 hand-made Honda Accords in the world.  To

the horror of Honda engineers, the filmmakers disassembled two of them to

make the film.

Everything you see in the film (aside from the walls, floor, ramp, and


Honda Accord) is parts from those two cars.

The voiceover is Garrison Keillor.  When the ad was shown to Honda

executives, they liked it and commented on how amazing computer graphics

have become.

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 commercial.
