See, I don't GET that commercial! But I'm sure my favorite commercials don't really make sense to many people either.

Burger King's new spicy chicken sandwich commercial is one of the funniest commercials I've ever seen.

has spent a little too much time at that nuclear waste site. Those weren't very funny, but the Quizno's one makes me not hate their store anymore

one of the coolest commercials ever made:

This is the world's most costly advertisement and the winner of this year's Best Ad of the World.
It took 606 takes and re-takes to make this commercial and the total cost was $6.2 million for this 90 second commercial. You could probably make a movie for that kind of money!
Everything is real with no graphics used and still look at the precision. The team that made this commercial won many awards.
The system was made from the parts of the Honda Accord. It's really impressive!

And you thought those people that set up a room... (more)

And you thought those people that set up a room full of dominos to knock over were amazing... believe it or not, just unbelievable!!
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 this film.
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 is 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!).
Everything you see in the film (aside from the walls, floor, ramp and complete Honda Accord) is 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 no J. And how 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. It looks a bit weird in the commercial.
At cost of $6.2 million for 90-sec commercial, this is world's costliest ad and hands down winner in the world of ads.
