    Oh man, I missed out on TV history!? Why didn't I know about this!?
    What did they do?
    Honda ads are very cool most of the time.

    Yes I saw it, thought it was brilliant :lol:

    yeah..very good...didn't think they were gonna manage the N lol.

    honda certainly make the best ads and arguably cars.

    There was a thread about it earlier - only reason I knew. 45 (or so) men jumped out of plane (with parachutes of course) and made (holding hands ect) each of the letters of Honda. Sorry if I've not explained it very well. x

    I just realised I was recording come dine with me so got to watch it, (not live) it was amazing.

    damn, missed it

    Don't worry guys, you can watch it online at the Honda Website.

    EDIT : When watching the advert, it said look on the Honda website to watch again, it's not up yet though....

    It was Fantastic !

    Lol agreed with you three, i got a bid worried too! :P

    ye they took ages to do the N the rushed the D so it looked more like an O and then at the end had like 20 seconds of them just floating around in their parachutes...so they could have perfected the D a bit more
    but i guess it was live lol so well done to them i guess
    i wouldn't even go parachute jumping!

    But if they spent that 20 seconds free-falling then the last shot would have probably been them splattered all over the floor.
    You'd drop quite far in 20 seconds lol

    Just found the link for the recording of the live ad. Pity I missed the live ad.

    Me too but the advert was still ****. Rather watch Cadburys racers any day:p

    Did anyone think the best bit of the whole ad was near the end when one of the parachutists had 'Hello Mum!' Written on his gloves? Makes me well up thinking about it,, soppy git I am

    That's an awesome ad.

    I love Honda Ads. They make me feel happy, and wonder "what is the point of that?" hehe.

    Yup, i know what you mean - strangest thing about this one is to me though, is you never actually see a single product in the ad which they are synonymous with? The one which left me totally confused was from a few years back. The background music was a pounding drum beat, and the theme was a frantic disjointed urban car journey ending up with the words "things could be worse - you could live in Orpington" I DID live there for about 25 years, and i can think of far worse places on the planet to live!!:?

    I found it funny as it was a honda ad yet im sure at the beginning the camera man had a BMW
