Not sure whether to believe this or not, some say its a fake others say it's real, others say it's an ad for Nissan. Judge for yourselves

Very much a fake, I seem to remember there was a thread about this a couple of years ago. :)

Please tell me you're joking....

It is so clearly a fake (and yes, it was a Nissan Frontier advert) as to be funny.


At least its an original ad concept

Not even an original concept.
Gerry Anderson used it in the Thunderbirds episode Trapped in the Sky (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:TrappedSkyFireflash.jpg)

Gerry Anderson used it in the Thunderbirds episode
If this was Pprune tube there would now be a protracted hissy fit with some spotty oik saying Gerry Anderson ripped it off of Nissan, followed by several pages of people pointing out the dates and how Gerry Anderson made it first and said spotty oik was a dunderheid. Spotty Oik would then cast aspersions on the parentage and sexual orientation of the the people who corrected him and it would all end in tears before bed time.
I'm so glad I'm on a civilised grown up forum, init :rolleyes:

Edited to add there'd be at least one person saying the anime verson was far better than the original and a bunfight over whether the live action verson was total carp or the best thing since sliced drawing boards!
edited again to add there'd be some dearheart saying kittens are nice and people shouldn't be mean to each other. ;)

Been around for years. See Flight 405. CGI just gets better doesn't it?

Well, CGI does get better, but 727's with winglets & a 767 cockpit window arrangement kinda lets it down.
