The UK DVD wouldn't work our your DVD player they use a different
encoding system in the rest of the world. Only the US and Canada use our
system of encoding.

One of my students directed me to the Honda UK site to see this. It's
the Honda Cog commercial- what you are seeing is real- no editing. I
think it took over 600 takes to get it right. The concept is based on
Rube Goldberg's inventions. My Jr. High students were so engrossed. I
really want to build a lesson around this commercial and Rube Goldberg's


If you visit the UK site you can sign up for a free DVD of the
commercial, of course you have to live in the UK. I called Honda
locally and they knew nothing about the commercial. If anyone has a
lead on how I can get my hands on one of those DVD's let me know.
