Honda's New Accord Advertisement, "Cog"
About this page
The original file was located at Honda's uk website. I simply copied a larger version of the advertisement (located here: http://multimedia.honda-eu.com/accord/) and placed on my webserver. This was only done because download rates from honda.co.uk were getting to be very poor and I wanted to send people to a rather quick download. However, due to my link spreading like wildfire, I've since just linked to the many others sites that now have it.
So a note to all you Honda lawyers, I'm not taking credit for this. This ad is clearly your work. Don't shoot. Please.
If you're like me, you're wondering how these tires roll uphill. For all the skeptics out there here's an article that briefly describes the 'making of'.
Also, in case you think you've seen something like this before, the ad is most definitely a nod to the filmmakers Peter Fischli and David Weiss. Their 1987 film, "The Way Things Go" is a 30-minute-long showing of a contraption they built out of household items. You can even watch a short clip here!
