Another amazing Honda commercial

Like the incredible "Cog" spot, Weiden+Kennedy has crafted another ad for Honda (UK) that Just. Gives. Me. Chills.

It involves a choir re-creating the sounds one hears while driving the new Civic.

Here's the new Civic ad.

(It's in Flash, so I can't give you a direct link, only one to the main page. Click on WATCH CIVIC in the upper-left corner.) There's video of the rehearsal process as well.

If anyone knows where I can download this in Quicktime format, I'd appreciate a link. Honda's link appears to be broken.

Yeah, that ad is really cool. When it came on TV here, Tom and I both sat in silence and watched it (they played the entire ad) and we both went "was that real?" :)

Honda has another great ad, not sure if it's by the same company or not. It's a long, animated 70's-ish thing, with a guy singing a song about how sometimes things are bad but then they're good (something like that anyway). It's an ad for their new quiet diesel engine, but the song is really entertaining and the animation is cool. :)

 

Okay, now it's your turn | Home
