Cog is easily the best commercial I have ever seen. (As you can tell, I’m on a video kick here recently since Edublogs updated their site.) Anyway, the Rube Goldberg styled, CGI-less advertisement for Honda Accord is a study in extreme detail and patience. They even created a “Making of Honda Cog” video to show what went into making this commercial a reality. Here is a quote from an article on the making of the commercial:
The clever two-minute Honda “COG” commercial is a real-time creation that took seven painstaking months to prepare – and 606 video takes – that results in a mesmerizing chain reaction that will leave you scratching your head.
This commercial is a few years, but I’m surised it never made its way to the States. It is shame because it is mesmerizing and I could watch it repeatedly.
