    Love it. Although I don't need to be watching that video. Having had the last 3 models of M5, I had to go through some serious emotions to switch gears and get a Tesla.

    What does the commercial say about the car? I my opinion not much.

    I think the first bit where it crashes through the glass like substance is fake. The water balloons look real (but they may have been popped by a remote trigger). The final one looks like it could be real. Not sure.

    Water balloons in that scale are physically impossible.

    VFX is right, some set up shots are real, but the slow-mo shots, particularly the balloons are not scaled. I'd love to see this as a silent flick, i.e. the Model S running the same course!

    But back to Lloyd, yeah nice vid indeed. I'd just love to be the guy who gets to dream these commercials up and then get paid to make them happen! :)

    I think if Tesla dose a commerical for the Model S it would have to say something about the car but for an established brand like BMW and car like the M5 it works perfectly.
