Check out this new Honda commercial; word has it it took 5 engineers 6 months to create:

And now I feel justified! That was awesome. I wonder how they got those tires to roll up the ramp!?

how did those three tires go up hill? Also, there seemed to be a couple times when the film was stopped or outside force applied.

Still, one of the best commercials I've ever seen.

Rube would certainly be impressed. It's kind of funny how the expression "Rube Goldberg job" took on such a negative connotation considering that everything he drew had an element of artistic genius to it. Most people don't even know who he was even though they may use the term to describe some debauchery of a construction project. I have always tinkered with the idea of entering into the Rube Goldberg Machine Contest. This commercial has inspired me :O)

Ever play the Incredible Machine computer game? Fascinating game. Essentially, you have some gizmos, and you have to align them in a way to accomplish some goal, like put a ball in a basket. Some are really, really hard.

If you like Rube Goldberg contests, you'll like the game.
