In the spirit of Carlson's Big Ad (the previously linked greatest spot ever filmed) comes this amazing Buzby Berkely inspired piece for Turkish financial institution Akbank.

So is it cg, or not? Pretty neat either way, but a lot less iimpressive if not real people. >:(

From where I sit, it looked like they filmed it, then sped the thing up.

Still, a neat little commercial. Thanks!

What makes you think it's cg? It looks like choreography to me.

Nothing the June Taylor Dancers (if there had been 10 times as many of them) or my high school band during a halftime show couldn't have done. But what if somebody from CalTech hacked the show?

The Big Ad is great, but my personal favorite was posted here by some clown a couple years back.

And why would the ad agency do this CGI? What would be the point, unless it was choreographed?

I'm voting real, but sped up. I'm also voting for the strong possibility of strategic pauses between set-ups.

seems like live (slowed) action to me. and its awesome! The music is pretty catchy, too.

As if this isn't impressive or amazing, greyface. Bravo to all involved, including you, jonson!

I'm just glad the Polyphonic Spree can still find work.
