Really trippy advert

I saw this at the cinema yesterday and I really liked it. If anyone can find out how to download it or find a higher-resolution version, let me know! I would like to make it into a screensaver.

Download this file (~5.5 MB) and play it with VLC Player.

Dunno which format it's supposed to be. "Stream and media info" says it's using codec SVQ3...

EDIT: suppose it's a QuickTime format. You can play it with Apple's player if you want.

Yeah that advert is so cool... I'm suprised you've never seen it before it's on quite alot on TV, but then it is only on the Sky channels (skyone skytwo etc.) . How amazing would that be in high def?

That is a beautiful ad. It shall remain in my mind with the likes of the funny SuperBowl commercials and that one mac ad, you know the one.


I'm done putting links in my signature because every time I do it just links to some old crap I've long since stopped updating.

Cool advert... I also really love the Sky one with the skate boarder. Sky have the best cinema ads. ;

Oh, and Mac have great ads as well.

Eh... the new Mac ads anger me. But this is timeless.

I've never gotten around to reading Ninteen Eighty-Four but Animal Farm was great.

I also think this sky advert with the surfer is awesome (although this version doesn't have the Sky logo at the end it's still the same clip from the video). It's even better watching it in a cinema atmosphere!

Yeah that one is another cool one to see at the cinema, as is that skateboarding one in the desert that Gabez mentioned. And we went to see a horror film once and my girlfriend was joking around with her friend about how the adverts were all nicey nice to put everyone in a calm mood before being terrified - and we were watching the sky advert which has a pretty little bird drinking from a pond. And then when the alligator ate the bird she screamed her head off. Kind of funny, kind of embarassing...

And I was in the cinema again yesterday and I saw an advert where they've buried a car somewhere and if you find it you can keep it. It's a Pirates of the Caribbean 2 promotion - I want to get one of those maps...

That 1984 ad is great and, I just realised, was parodied by Futurama.

Damn I was just gonna say that! It's spoofed for a "Planet Express" advert. It's very funny now I know why it's on the episode before I was just confused... I'm always confused... I love the new mac adverts! And check out these hilarious spoofs The iBoxThe iBox!

Wow, it's really sad that whenever I see this, I think of that Futurama parody of this. Sad.

That first ad was out of site. Than goodness I'm high on pool chlorine.

This is it, but from a different angle (or a different skater).

Please, no. It has to have the music.

(And as far as I know it's not on the Internet anyway. Believe me, I've looked).
