    I'm not sure whether it is being shown outside the UK, but there is an advert currently running on TV over here for a well-known make of German car ;) that I think is very cool! It's based on Gene Kelly's classic scene in 'Singing in the Rain'. I won't spoil it - it's online here:
    :cool:

    Here's a little article on the making of the advert:

    EDIT: Just thought that I should add that I'm in no way affiliated with the company. I just posted about this video because it's entertaining and a pretty impressive technical feat.
