    Today I've came across with this spoof. Search YouTube for "Old Citroen 2CV"+"spoof". It is hilarious!

    Yes. I didn't wanted to put a link because I was afraid of spamming.

    I've compared these two commercials and came to the conclusion that the spoof was really well done. Even the surrounding area resembled the one in the original commercial (with some differences, of course).

    As long as you are not selling something, its not offensive/vulgar, and its OT then feel free to post a link. If there is something that violates the rules I'll let you know ;)

    It was pretty well done. I just love the way it falls apart at the end! My mum had one of these - load of garbage! :D

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Takes 30 seconds from 0 to 100Km/h.

    Do you believe this?

    This is from the same creator. It is obviously fake, like the onion charger. I didn't saw any electrodes made of different metals in the onion, but this video is even worse. Only makes me laugh.

    If you see the mechanism itself, you can see how simple it is. There is where it resides the genius. And the proportions are beautiful!

    I don't know exactly how he arrived at the design, but I see some beautiful mathematics in that motion.

    Simplicity is it, although when many of them are in motion it gives the illusion of sheer complexity. I don't download videos from youtube very often, but this is one that I most certainly have.

    Reminds me of the "Foresight" technology we have in the UK (its not just available in the UK!) for slow-motion replays of the Cricket - you can see the bats wobble as the balls strike them!
