There are no computer graphics or digital tricks in these images. Everything that you see happened in real time exactly as you see it.

The recording required 606 takes and in the first 605 takes there always was something, usually of minor importance, that didn’t work. It was necessary for the recording team to install the set-up time after time and it took several weeks working day and night to achieve this effect.

The recording cost 6 million dollars and it took 3 months to finish, including the engineering design of the sequence.

Cool!! I was thinking that this person liked cars because of all the parts, but it turns out to be a car commercial! That must be a long room.

It looks animated! But yeah I think that commercial was too long they should have sped it up! But I watched the whole thing and it kept me interested so there we go they did an AMAZING JOB!!!

Armaan, yes, all this for a commercial. But guess what, this was an extremely successful commercial for Honda - people were sending this video to all their friends, and it spread so widely, it got Honda a lot of publicity!!
