Call me scepticle but I don't think it was. There is one main reason. When you see the wheels rolling up the ramp each one gets faster and faster as it is going up the ramp. This is against the rules of forces.
Each impact would have a knock non effect and would release energy to the next but it would be less that the orignal force due to loss. Also going up a slope would reduce the speed of the wheels.
The rest of it is possible but I would say not all of it was done in one go just stiched together.
This is only my opinion though. But I still agree with you it was a brilliant advert. They have done a few like this one. This just happens to be the longest one.

Agreed Rowal5555,also there are a few more things that are against the laws of physics.
I have to agree. It is extremely well put together and I've watched a loop of this over and over again. It is fascinating but I have to agree with projectfocus, the laws of physics would not allow those wheels to act like that.

Well DSTM, sounds like the engineer coming out there, LOL.
BTW, I loved the transformer Citroen in your other post.
I am off cruising in the morning, so will take this opportunity to wish all Bleeping Computer members, Staff, and your families a very Merry Christmas and the greatest of New Years.

Hi boopme,The points I mentioned, with my 35 yrs engineering experience, in my mind cannot be copied without tricks being used.Try anyone yourself and they won't work.I can make those wheels do exactly what they have done,but not without trickery.It's really quite simple. I am not trying to be a smarty,in the least.
A little more research and Snopes says it's real.
Sometimes you just have to be amazed,,,like watching David Blaine get you a beer.
btw Bon Voyage Rowal555
