    Im sure many of you have seen this already, but if you havent you should check it out. Its a commercial for the euro Honda Accord in which they took apart an accord and used its parts to start a chain reaction that would eventually hit a button on the remote of a built Accord. Supposedly uses no special effects what-so-ever and took over 600 shots to make.

    That commercial is old, but very cool. No way in hell those wheels could defy gravity like that without special effects.

    "It's actually perfectly possible to make wheels go uphill - and if you look closely you can see the further reason why it worked (although massive weights in the tops is very helpful too... )

    If, rather than a single piece of wood/metal, you get two thin pieces and place them so that the gap between them tapers as they slope downhill, you can place a wheel between them and it will go uphill of it's own accord.

    This works better if the wheel diameter ALSO narrows the further from the centre it is. Effectively the centre of gravity drops, even though the slope is uphill. "

    an attempt from someone trying to explain how they rolled uphill
