Unless you have been living under a rock, chances are you have seen one of GEICO's many advertisements. Regardless of…
Initially the creators of this video wanted to use real cars for the filming of this action sequence, but since the insurance costs would have been prohibitively expensive, they were forced to scale down the production and use RC cars instead. ;)
All joking aside, this film is a great example of shoestring ingenuity and creative imagination hard at work. The creators made the set entirely out of hot glue, cardboard and spray paint (including the clapper), so for the money, it’s one heck of a ride. We tip our hats to the creators of this excellent homage to Hollywood car chase scenes and hope they get a blockbuster size budget next time around.
