    I don't think it took them more than one take to get it right...it's been helped with computers quite a bit. The tires going uphill is complete crap, also that thing that rolls up to the power window. It lost all it's inertia at the window and would not have picked up it's original speed so quickly after the window opened unless it was majorly downhill.

    Rube Goldberg was a master...but he didn't use computers to cheat!

    Isn't it nice when everything works? Everything working is just a fantasy in their case.

    I hate to do it man but its not been helped by computers...it was filmed over like 6 days straight and took about 607 takes...the tires going up hill were weighted with small nuts and bolts at the top of the tire so the momentum from them dropping inside would roll the tires uphill...i saw this video a couple weeks ago and have a link to an article about it if you like

    by the way it was filmed in a flat in Paris...

    This has links to most of the news reports on it:

    Honda Cog Commercial

    One of the best commercials that I have seen in a while! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
