Double take ads

Filed under: tv — by ichabodisitchy @ 5:55 pm

If you live in the UK and watch TV, you may know what I mean by the ‘Sony balls’ advert and the ‘Honda choir’ advert. The first shows thousands of multi-coloured balls bouncing down the streets of San Francisco (real, by the way–they’re not computer generated). The second features a choir of people in a car-park providing the soundtrack to a car driving around.

Both are, in my opinioin, excellent ads. Well, thinkbox tv has produced ‘virals’ of these two ads. The Sony spin-off is for Tango and features raining fruit. The Honda spin-off is for 118 118 and has the two 118 men doing a soundtrack to a trip in their car. You can see the originals alongside them. Check them out– v cool.

  1. Very cool! I wonder if that choir really was making all of those sounds. Was the fruit real too? (I kind of hope not. Actually I don’t think it is because it would have made a much bigger mess).
