Thread: The coolest car commercial ever ?

    Default The coolest car commercial ever ?

    I don't know if this is being aired in the States, but check this out...

    Honda Accord TV commercial

    They say it is not computer generated and took 606 takes to get right. I'm not sure if I totally believe it, but it's still a great sequence.

    Oh well, I guess no one reads my thread anymore. I'll have to start changing the subject lines to reflect the new posts.

    Very cool commercial though!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

    I heard a rumour today that it might be a computer graphic after all, at least in part. There's just a couple of things about it that are just too perfect. A computer animator friend of mine reckons the bit with the door handles gives it away and it seems odd how those three tyres on the ramp seem to accelerate up the incline. He's in touch with someone who worked on the commercial and is trying to find out more.

    But yes, it is still brilliant. "Cheats" or not, I love it.

    From here:

    At one point, three tyres roll uphill because inside they have been weighted with bolts and screws

    and that bit about the window/plank, it's also for real.

    not mentioned is the window/plank bit, but watch it closely, TWO planks, with a cut in the middle for the window to go through.
