Lucky Moments Video

Just happened upon this video and thought it was amazing. My favorite is the bank robbery. Nothing grisly here, so no fear for the squeamish.

Sorry about the hideous music.

wasn't there a commercial for the then-newly-redesigned camry exactly like that bank robbery scene a few years ago?

I don't know what the actual title is, but it oughta be called, "How the heck am I still alive?" That is some cool sh..um..Stuff!!

Actually, that bank robbery is the only segment that looks like it could have been staged. The rest of them...astonishing.

I'm not so sure about that van getting crushed... was that a giant cadbury egg?

The bank robbery is a Chevy Malibu commercial, just filmed from another angle:

If you look at it in this "Chance" clip, you can see the police cars waiting just down the street a bit.

Giant cadbury egg. LOL.

On va très bonne chance!

jason,
You're right, you can see the cops waiting down the street, so this segment was faked. However, on closer comparison I see it is not the same scene as the Chevy commercial. It's a different sidewalk and the robber doesn't fall down as he jumps over the hood. My guess is the ad agency copied this clip for the Chevy commercial.
Thanks for that url.

What happened in the second clip? The tennis one. I couldn't catch anything...

Andrea said...

I was wondering about the tennis clip too - what's going on in that one?

That tree deserves a medal. I had a few similar things happen that would sound just as unbelievable to tell here.
