I **think** it's been posted before. Very cool all the same! It's from a UK TV ad if I recall right.

Yes that's correct. To think that this is done for real and not by CG is really impressive.
It was filmed in two halves and these two halves were digitally merged together. In the high def version of the film you can actually see the transition.

It is pretty damn cool. However, I don't know about those tires rolling UP the ramp.

Its an awesome commercial nonetheless and its fun to watch.

Thanks for posting.

something to do with ball bearings inside the tires rigged that when the tyre was bumped they rolled in the direction they wanted the tyre to travel... the weight pushed it as far as it needed to go..

presto.. tyres rollin uphill..

if memory serves it was 660 takes to get it right... and absolutely everything used except for the ramp at the end and some fishing line is a part out of the car being advertised...

apparently some people were getting so uptight throughout the shoot that they had to be sent home cos they were walking to heavy and setting this off to early as all the stuff was balanced so exactly that talking loud and footsteps could set it off..

Watching it for the first time is cool. Watching it the second time is kind of boring... like most Hollywood movies... Still better than most car/truck commercials on TV except for the European Ford Kia, was it? :giggle
