The Amazing Machine

This Honda Ad seems destined to become legend in advertising. Replicating The Amazing Machine (Or, if my Apple ][ memory serves me right, Rocky’s Robots). Already it’s making it’s way around the blogging world. I saw it first on a link from Kottke, E has a link too. More importantly, E also links to this article at the Telegraph, and this one at the Daily Record. Interestingly, these are both British tabs. Is this ad for the European market then?

  5. Couple of things. The Telegraph’s a broadshet, not a tabloid. Secondly, I’m sure I’ve seen somewhere- possibly in the Telegraph’s article itself- that this is destined to be a worldwide campaign.
