Bill Shunn posted on about this ad for the new Honda Accord. It looks cool and I like it, but I assumed there was some CGI in it until I read an article on the making of the commercial. No CGI, all analog precision setup. I was slightly distressed when the article mentions the game Mousetrap and the machines in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang but not the common ancestor of all this stuff, Rube Goldberg’s cartoons.
