Alas, the Honda ad was not single-take (material for both was spliced together) and modified (the Exhaust system does not, in fact, sound like a tuning fork)The OK Go video was not. And that is why the OK-Go video wins for me, because it's honest :D
According to Snopes the Honda ad is two takes spliced together. And article that I saw yesterday that I will try to relocate said that the OK GO video was 60 takes spliced together.CC
I know people who know people who were involved with the OK GO video. And I've heard that it was one single shot (though there were multiple takes to get it). I trust information from the person who told me this, but since I don't personally know the person he heard it from I can't say I entirely vouch for it. Either way, it looked pretty cool.
According to Wired.com, via CNN:"The video was shot by a single Steadicam, but it took more than 60 takes, over the course of two days, to get it right."
Can't find my original source and I'm starting to think that it has been taken down, but it looks like that source had misinterpreted the statement PG quoted. I've corrected the post, though I still maintain that the Honda Accord ad has more style. CC
