Sam's Favorite Video: A Honda Ad

Every night before Sam will go to sleep, he wants to watch this video on my iPod touch:



I have to admit- it's pretty fun to watch, and much more age appropriate than most of the content on YouTube. I've always loved chain reaction things like this- dominos or what have you. The video may be a little doctored or impossible (or maybe not) but it's still pretty clever. Hope you like it as much as Sam does.

Not doctored or fake, its the real deal. It took something like 200 takes to get it all to work.

I showed this to the girls and told them what each part was. FIVE viewings later I finally peeled them away from the computer. I can now recite each part in the order it is seen...

I'll be a proud father when they can identify a valve stem or connecting rod without any help.

Sam's watching it again right now. Do you know if there's a name for this type of chain reaction/domino effect/mousetrap-like phenomenon?

I always called them Rube Goldberg devices but I'm not sure if there is an official name. You want to look for more?

I love Rube Goldberg machines!!! I remember when I first saw this ad, a few years ago...I bet Kenny would love it. I'll give him a viewing. Thanks for the share.
