It`s an ad, so it may be fake, I can see where that would be hard to set up.
But it sends a message and it`s mega cool.

Awesome. Looks like some kind of ad? Maybe do something creative like this and get 10k pounds?

Would have been more impressive (or sad depending on your point of view) if it had been someone just setting them up for kicks. Ruined it since it was an advertisment.

it wouldmt cost a lot of money, cause you could go to the bank and change it, then after the filming take it back....... and it would cost loads more to CG it

Yeah, I reckon sections, too, just to get the right shots for the camera and stuff, but still quite cool! My favorite part was the different acoustical properties as the coins fell on the different floor materials. Very cool! :-)

"what happenis if he screwes it up on like the last coin?" He`s joining the dole the next day.

Anyone saying about how much it costs, Sky TV and Vodafone are incredible wealthy. 10000 pound is a drop in the ocean to them. And to thos not in the know, UK pound coins are quite thick, and fairly easy to stand on edge, so It`s likely real, although I don`t know. I`ve just tried this with 7 pound and it worked, but thats a little different..

also, lol KMeTG!

That was awesome. And I do believe they sectioned it but they actually set up the coins, as around the two circles there were no further coins visible even though the camera showed a bit past the edge, but then it cut to a line of coins beyond it, and for the second argument the spacing does account for the slowing.

They probably had maybe 2,000 coins and did the thing in sections creating the effect of a huge domino track.

deaf_woman is right: they slow down when they are closer together.

Also, DragonSageX, you are silly wrong. The coins "pausing" for a brief second is an indication that they are real, not that they are animated. Unless you put extra work in it, digitally animated things always end up too smooth. Also, it doesn`t look like CG at all. Also, it would probably be cheaper to get 10,000 1-pound coins and pay a few guys to set it up and a camera crew to film it than it would be to hire a guy to do it in CG.

^ or closer together, i think.
Less energy transferred if the coin didn`t have time to fall a decent distance... kinda thing? And a touch more friction too?

Ok ok. I don`t know my ass from my elbow. Better go wipe my elbow.

I`m sure they would have done it in sections rather than one long train, and just kept re-starting it. Still very cool.

Yeah UK pound coins are preety heavy and easy to set up but since this is an add for Sky tv and Vodafone chances are it was fake, computer anamited or done is small sections and pasted togeather.

Still dosn`t change the fact that it`s cool though

Very cool!

I expect they did do it in sections, rather than one long train. It would be near impossible to do all that without losing your mind every time it all falls down before you finish it :-P But its still mesmerising to watch after they`ve edited it

They certainly look like British pound coins to me. They are relatively easy to set on edge and would be perfect to use for a domino effect.

Since this was an ad, the agency probably commissioned someone to get 10,000 coins, set them up, professionally shoot the event, etc.

Flame me if you want..just read my thoughts here. =\.
...here`s hoping I did the tags right for anyone who doesn`t wanna read...though I have a feeling i`m gonna look like a dumb ass with busted up tags.

[spoiler] About half way through, I was watching it, trying to see what kind of a coin it was, or roughly what size it is. I got a quarter here I can set on it`s edge, but..even that`s a bitch to set up. I started to watch it a bit more closely, and I dunno. It started to look more and more fake. Maybe `cause of the excessive camera changes, but what put me over the edge was the way the coins seemed to pause for a brief second, as if it were being digitally animated. Like I said, I don`t know. But with that many cuts in the camera shots, maybe they just set up each segment and filmed them individually?[/spoiler]
