Trompe l'oeil trailer for Honda triumphs

This new advert for the latest Honda model will have your brain scrambled.

We've seen some absolutely brain-scrambling examples of trompe l'oeil in our time and this latest commercial from Honda pretty much takes the biscuit. Packed full of optical illusions and illustrations, this brilliant commercial was created by UK ad agency mcgarrybowen.

Aiming to show that 'Honda's new CR-V 1.6 diesel film is not what it first seems. Through the ingenuity of its engineering, Honda has designed a fuel efficient SUV and made the impossible possible,' the commerical sees a series of optical illusions take over.

Want to see how it was done? Well, you're in luck as the car giants have also put up a behind-the-scenes video to make sense of the trompe l'oeil madness.
