Honda CR-V 1.6 Diesel Commercial: Illusions of the possible

Phillip Roberts 19. November 2014 Entertainment, Magazine, Videos & Movie Reviews 1 Comment

As you have probably noticed by now, we at INOPIAN are very fond of good automotive advertising and clever marketing. This time our focus is on the Honda CR-V 1.6 Diesel commercial that ran in Europe called: An Impossible Made Possible. Although it aired a year ago I had to watch it again and again and thought it was worth mentioning.

This creative commercial is full of mind-blowing illusions that constantly deceive your eyes. Not everything that we see is true and the same goes for the Honda CR-V 1.6 Diesel. The commercial wanted to emphasize the fact that even an SUV can actually be fuel efficient.

To elaborate I will write down the figures that Honda claims the CR-V can achieve. Promising 62.8 MPG which is about 4.5 L/100 km. Exciting? How about the range: promising 802 miles or 1291 km? Let’s put it this way, it’s really not bad for an SUV such as the CR-V.

Anyway, to get myself back on track, you need to see the video. It is very clever in how your eyes can be fooled.

Now that you’ve seen the commercial, you can also watch the “How it was done” video below. With a bit of luck it should provide your eyes and brain with a logical explanation and relief from the mind scrambler.

About Phillip Roberts

As a little boy my Dad always told me stories about the glorious days of automotive pioneering and days when classics were common. This has influenced me in such an effect I have become a helpless petrol-head...

…my driving license was still on it's way when I had bought my first petrol-smelling Italian stallion... No, it wasn't a Ferrari... It was Fiat Regata, twin choke Weber 1.5 in neat condition with bad attitude. It wasn't in any way quick by today's standards nor was it a good handler. More like an SUV actually. It was so high that my girlfriend at the time, (a little taller than a bucket,) almost needed a ladder to get into it. However, it was a good car till the first winter came and I wrecked it.

My next car was a BMW E30 1987 2.4d. It is still my all-time favorite. It just had a black metallic paint job done when I bought it and shiny chrome bumpers. As Steel Panther would say say, "that car was bitchin'." I had nice Alpina alloys that I kept getting nicked for. Apparently they were not marked in my documents so each time the police caught me I got a fine.

After about a dozen fines in 3 months I said `sod it` and had BMW amend my documents. This one wasn't really quick off the mark but once it was up to speed you could throw it into any corner and it would come out still alive and pointing the right way. I sold it eventually because I didn't have the time to get it back to original condition and I later found out that the guy I sold it to wrecked it couple of months after. What a shame.

I also had a BMW E46. I liked the look of it but it was useless. It had so many problems one day I wished someone would run into me so I could get rid of it and get some money back. Guess what... a week later a Spanish fellow in a borrowed company Skoda ran up the boot and parked on my back seat. My girlfriend got a panic attack and became so furious she would have beaten him up if I`d let her. However, I had successfully gotten rid of the car.

So this is the story of my beginnings. There are two things that I love other than music and my family. Writing and cars. Why not combine them? I figured there may be more people like me and so I wanted to participate in this amazing opportunity for everyone to share their knowledge, experience and passion, and build something unique while doing it.
