@Max: "what did you think about the "This Too Shall Pass" music video?"

Some months ago, you recommended me the videoclip, but when I searched for it I saw the "music band version" official video, not the Rube-Goldberg one...

This is really cool!! Now I understand it all!!

@Garcia: I love the Honda commercial, it was true love at first sight when I first saw it on Spanish TV.

My favourite moment is when the battery gets connected and the stereo starts to play "Another one bites the dust".

I agree -- I love that one too, but what did you think about the "This Too Shall Pass" music video? I have to say that I don't listen to much modern music -- I'm sort of trapped in a time loop with Pink Floyd, Genesis, Led Zepplin, and so forth (plus I also like Church Organ Music :-)  ... but I have to say that this tune really sticks in my head...

@kfield: They have to be highly trained dogs, don't you think, to sit still in a wagon, catch a frisbee at the exact right moment, and more?

You could train me to do that with just a couple of beers :-)

The Rube Goldberg/puppy video was a caliber higher (or two) than all of the other cute puppy videos out there. They have to be highly trained dogs, don't you think, to sit still in a wagon, catch a frisbee at the exact right moment, and more?
