A friend sent this. It's pretty cool.


Prepare to be amazed!

If you thought those people who set up a room full of
dominoes just to knock them over were amazing . . .
you ain't seen nothing yet!

The filming of this video commercial for Honda took
606 takes. On the first 605 takes, something --
usually minor -- didn't work perfectly and they would
have to set the whole thing up again.

The crew spent weeks shooting night and day. By the
time it was completed, the commercial cost six million
dollars and took three months to complete, including
the full engineering of the sequential actions.

Also, the video is two minutes long so every time
Honda airs it, they're really shelling out the dough.
However, it is getting a tremendous number of "free
viewings" on the Internet -- enough exposure value to
pay for the whole project.

Everything you see in the video (except the walls,
floor, ramp and the completed Honda vehicle) are
actual parts removed from two of only six existing
hand-assembled Honda Accords.

There are no camera tricks here, and no computer
graphics were used. This is the real deal! Oh,
you'll notice some weird-looking windshield wipers
doing a funky dance. Those are real wipers, because on
the new Accords, the windshields have built-in water
sensors that automatically start the wipers when they
get wet.
