This ad first aired in April 2003 in England. It is a Honda ad for the 2003 Accord. Watch and be amazed.

First, I don't care that it is in the wrong forum, secondly, in this forum it will be seen by many. I actually thought it should go in the TV and Movies forum, but then decided against it as that forum is normally centered around media longer than 30 seconds to 2 minutes as is the case with this ad.

1st: I care that its in the wrong forum.

2nd: Moved.

3rd: Get your dick out your arse and post in the right place next time, just because General Chat has more views doesn't mean you can post incorrect stuff there.

4th: Don't bother arguing back, it won't get you anywhere.

Ok sorry BroDan. I just didn't think it would suit this forum. However, I am not going to argue with you.

Did you watch the ad by the way?

How did the tyres roll UP that ramp?
Everything else made sense though...

I still think it is brilliant. BroDan, did you know they shoot it in two parts, the first part ends with the exhaust rolling along. You can't tell but it happens. Also, you live in England, so that isn't fair.
fido2, I;m not sure, I think it just occurs because of the motin they are in. If you watch closely, the second to last tire almost doesn't make it.

It is VERY old and I heard it was shot in alot more than one or two takes so I guess it's all hearsay.

It took 606 film takes to get right. They finally got it to work and it was filmed all the way through without any cuts.

I thought it was pretty cool and I've never seen it before but I don't get how the tires rolled up the ramp thing.

weights in the tyre/on the wheel at the top balanced perfectly

when tapped the weight is pulled down by gravity, making the wheel turn climbing the ramp or something like that

I got the (free) DVD they offered of it blush.gif, it explains it on that somewhere on toast

I am just assuming that the tyres were moving a lot quicker then they were depicted in the ad to the naked eye. I have seen it many times. Whoever said it took 2 takes can go and crawl back under their rock, because it took, as said before, 600 odd takes to get it right.

Incredible ad though.

I'd like to know where a gigantic plank of wood fits into a Honda Accord.

I know it took 606 takes, what I meant was that the final take was shot in two peices. Because of the room they were using, they had to split the whole take up into 2 parts so that it would fit into the room. Go to Snopes.com and read around there it links to all the info about it.

The best ad since the infamous Guiness ads. (which are currently being re-run with a "cold" theme)

Did you notice that it's the Accord Wagon?

Yes, I've seen it before.
Yes, I like it.
