The Human Car – Powered by You.

Written by Thomas Baekdal | Saturday, February 23, 2008

Ford Canada has made a new commercial featuring people. I know, that doesn't sound too special - most commercials have people in them. But not like this... The Ford commercial features only people, and yet what you see is 3 cars.

Take a look for yourself...

And... here is the video:

Not to mention - a behind the scenes look:

Wait a minute!

But, then somebody yells out "wait a minute... Haven't we seen this before?" No, actually, you haven't. I agree that this is not first time a car manufacturer has used human bodies to create car shapes and body art.

Below is, for instance three similar ads from Hyundai and VW and BidWest. The special thing about the Ford ad is that it is not a "shadow trick". This is 3D art - not 2D "shadow" art.

Both types are very cool - and mind-boggling in an exciting way. I just happen to like the 3D type better.

Note: Yes I own and drive a Ford every day, so I might be slightly biased.
