I love the creative latitude the Europeans have in their advertising.

Turn the sound up............. 3 litres of Ferrari at 14,000 RPM sweet music.

Ya I really enjoy that one too. My wife works for Wieden and Kennedy the advertising agency who created that commercial. Their London office has the Honda of Europe account were they do some great work.

Here's the first Honda commercial that really created some buzz. It was produce with no computer enhancement, just as you see it. The final cut was done in one take, shot with multiple cameras . They did spend a few days setting everything up though.

pretty great - and I know it was one take - though I seem to remember the one was about the 650th take

Amazing! I found a similar thing though on a more modest scale:

Michael,

I love it, reminds me of a beer dispensing machine one of the mechanical engineers designed in our frat back in my collage days.

It never delivered though!

....I dont know..1st time I have seen wheels roll up hill!

That's easy, counter weights inside the wheels. Notice they only make at most near a half rotation. The German group that put that commercial together have done several large scale Kinetic Sculptures. Some have taken over an hour to complete the cycle once they start. Its all balance, counter-balance etc... No digital trickery.

Let's see, Formula 1 and beer (dispensing), two of my favorites.

Here's another one of the two: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wK-TXJPiDQ
