About 606 tries to get it right..................lol
READ THIS ABOUT IT !
Be sure to read the info 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

viewing" (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 engineers, the

filmmakers disassembled two of them to make the film.

All you see in the film (aside from the walls, floor, ramp,

and complete Honda Accord) are parts from those two

cars.



The voice over 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.

Watch the part where the tires go up the ramp....it looks really fake because the tires start to move slowly, then accelerate up the ramp. Also the second tire seems to roll back down the ramp and then come back up.

Still a cool commercial though.

My favourite part is where battery gets connected running the pump to get the windshield wet to turn wipers on haha.
