Read the info below first, then watch the clip.

And you thought those people that set up roomfuls of dominos to knock over were amazing. There are no computer graphics or digital
Tricks in the film.
Everything you see really happened in real time exactly as you see it.

The film took 606 takes. On the first 605 takes, something, usually very minor, didn't work. They would then have to set the whole
Thing up again.

The crew spent weeks shooting night and day. By the time it was over, they were ready to change professions. The film cost six million
Dollars and took three months to complete including full engineering of the sequence. In addition, it's two minutes long so every time
Honda airs the film on British television, they're shelling out enough dough to keep any one of us in clover for a lifetime.

However, it is fast becoming the most downloaded advertisement in internet history. Honda executives figure the ad will soon pay for
Itself simply in "free viewings" (Honda isn't paying a dime to have you watch this commercial!).

When the ad was pitched to senior executives, they signed off on it immediately without any hesitation - including the costs.

There are six and only six hand-made Honda Accords in the world. To the horror of Honda engineer's, the filmmakers disassembled two of them to make the film.

Everything you see in the film (aside from the walls, floor, ramp, and complete Honda Accord) is parts from those two cars.

The voiceover is Garrison Keillor. When the ad was shown to Honda executives, they liked it and commented on how amazing computer graphics have gotten.

They fell off their chairs when they found out it was for real. Oh, and about those funky windshield wipers. On the new Accords, the
Windshield wipers have water sensors and are designed to start doing their thing automatically as soon as they become wet.

This is quite a few years old. Not sure how true the story is since you know how things can get exaggerated on the internet over time. Not the coolest Rube Goldberg Machine I've seen, but it's still pretty neat.

A few more on some Asian tv show:

They take quite a long time to build and test, but the end result is awesome.
