Okay, you're hip. You're happening. You've seen this, and yet I still love it almost three years later.

Here's a link for the Honda advertisement, The Cog. http://www.ebaumswor...h/honda-ad.html

An amazing display of science and ingenuity.

Just thought some one would enjoy it.

Whats wrong with my grandad liking them, they are good adverts and he used to work with vehicles so he likes them in parts. You know an advert is good when everyone can appreciate it, doesnt make me want to buy a honda accord though.

Danielc:

Thanks! I had seen the "Big Ad" last year. We have a friend who does props for Milwaukee Rep Theater. He's the one who sends us these things.

I love the beer guys running down into the glass. And all to the quasi-chant "Its a big ad. A real big ad."

Fun.

Reminds me of all the ads in the early 90s with just huge number of people running around colourfully dressed.
