    Link: Happy Christmas from AKQA - Nicely executed creative ad. It must have taken quite a while to time everything out.

    That is really, really cool. It must of taken ages to co-ordinate and rehearse something like that.

    faked probably, just take some footage of lots of microwaves going out one by one and record different microwave sounds. Then just edit the bits where nothing happens between microwaves stopping to the right length and put the sounds into the song and put them both together. Still hard but a heck of a lot easier than getting the microwaves to do it all in one take.

    Whether or not they actually did it is beside the point. They made the commercial look like they did it...and it...was...awesome!

    Was cool; but for the most part it was hard to make out the song in the beeps. Sounded too much like noise with the difference of bings and tings in the way each microwave dinged.

    Yes, that much microwave radiation will surely turn some guy into a Christmas-y shade of green. He`ll probably even glow...
