Turn up sound if you want to hear the music.
The U.S. Car Manufacturers make zillions of boring car commercials,
and most of us have to mute the hyped sound. The Russkies make one
commercial per maker a year, 3 minutes long, and this is one.

(I can’t help but wonder how commercial networks force the original author of this one to watch their commercials. Sounds counter-productive to me. Force me to watch your commercial and I’m just not going to buy what you’re peddling. – Ed)
Sound on and watch.
Every night and day we sit and moan about the rubbish being passed off as commercials that we are forced to watch by our commercial networks.
If only we could make commercials like this one, there would be no complaints forthcoming. This really is magical…..
David Attenborough does it again!
What a stunning commercial from BBC !

(Ed. – I share this as is. The commercial is in fact for LG not Dyson – but it doesn’t affect the joke.)

If you’ve ever driven on ice, you will appreciate the driving skills shown in this video …
U.S. Car Manufacturers make ‘zillions’ of boring car commercials each year, and most of us have to ‘mute’ the hyped sound. The Russians make one commercial a year, 3 minutes long, and this is it.
At the end they give credits and the drivers bow in their cars.

This is one you got to watch!!!!
Italian Auction – only 44 seconds!
You don’t have to understand Italian to follow the auctioneer:
A Chinese Ming Vase is up for auction. The bidding opens at a half-million Euros.
Bidding is brisk and each bidder is clearly identified as each raises the bid by 100,000 Euros. (The exchange rate at auction time was 1 Euro = $1.43.) Within seconds, the bid stalls at one million Euros, and the gasp from the crowd identifies the excitement that prevails in the room. The successful bidder is the last one who bid one million, and the auctioneer counts down the bid, “Going once, going twice, and sold to the gentleman sitting in front of me for one million Euros.”
Now, you are going to have to see the video for yourself. The auctioneer is exuberant. The pace is fast. This is how an auction should be run.
