If you haven’t seen it, YOU HAVE GOT TO SEE THIS Amazing Honda Accord Commercial.  Thanks Bill Mead for the link!!!

Official Disclaimer:  There are NO computer graphics or digital tricks in the film you  are about to see. Everything you see really happened in real time, exactly as  you see it. The film required 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 6 million dollars and took three months to complete,  including a 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 Accords in the world. To the  horror of Honda engineers, 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. … about those funky windshield  wipers:

On the new Accords, the windshield wipers have water sensors and are  designed to start functioning automatically as soon as they become wet It  looks a bit odd in the commercial.

As amazing as this is, ! the commercial is actually based on an  earlier film from the 1970s called "How Things Move" by two Swiss  self-destructing artifacts artists.

P.S. Some sharp-eyed folks claim that tires rolling UPHILL necessarily  require computer-generated effects. Not so. The sequence where the tires roll  up a slope looks particularly impressive but is very simple. There is a weight  [in each] tire and when the tire is knocked, the weight is displaced and in an attempt to rebalance itself,  the tire rolls up the slope.
