re: Honda "Cog" commercial

Dudes, you're missing the all time coolest Honda commerical ever:

If you haven't seen this you're in for a treat. This is NOT computer animated or special effects at all - everything was a honda part and this was done in ONE take (on about the 600th try, I think). I saw this a year or so ago and still get a kick out of watching it. There are some sites on the web where you can download a full high res version, but this will get you started:

Oh, and here's a bunch of stuff on how they did it: people always fuss about the tires rolling uphill but they weighted them:

Re: Honda accord "cog" video

The Cog commercial has been around for a few years. I think I read somewhere it was aired to the British public during the World Cup (their version of the playoffs and Superbowl). It was deemed much to lengthy to be used again.

Re: Honda accord "cog" video

One of my friends sent me a link to a website and I saw it on there. I wasn't sure how old it was, that's good info.

Re: And Who Said Honda's Are Not Special...

Yay, Rube Goldberg machines (even if it was created with CGI)! Too bad we can't get that nice Accord wagon.

24 seconds in the tires end up going up hill, how does that work?

The tire is weighted inside.

It's an old video, from the late 90s perhaps. Apparently it is all real, no CGI. I don't know if it was all shot in one take, though.

Back when Honda was great....
