The Ultimate Rube Goldberg Machine...And Honda

From an e-mail I got... Don't know how much of it is true, but the commercial is pretty cool.

"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 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 killer. 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. And 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."
