see explanation below:  most watched commercial

Read before watching.  If you thought that the people who set up a room full of dominoes to have them knocked over later was amazing, you haven't seen anything yet. This is the new Honda commercial in the UK. Very important that you understand:  There are no computer graphics or digital tricks in these images.  Everything that you see happened in real time exactly as you see it.

 The recording required 606 takes and in the first 605 takes there always was something, usually of minor importance, that didn't work. It was necessary for the recording team to install the set-up time after time and it took several weeks, working day and night to achieve this effect.     

 The recording cost 6 million dollars and it took 3 months to finish. The duration of the video is  only 2 minutes, but every time that Honda shows the commercial on British  television, they make enough money to support any of us for the rest of our  lives.

 However, this commercial has turned out to be the most displayed in the history of the Internet.  Just click on “AllPhysics “—below  & watch in amazement --
