I saw it too, kinda cool. Don't think it was noman because the pilot wasn't close enough to the ground. My gf was talking to me at the time and I gave her the hand so I could focus on the commercial.....that went over well Explode

That is all computer graphics, there is no way they could ever get 3 F-22 to fly at the same time in one day. They have been grounded for over 9 months.

That would be advertising world, where Camrys sweep past 2011 Yamah R1s without raising a sweat.

Funny way to advertise what is (here in Australia at least) the retired person's car. An add that said "look, enough boot space for two Zimmer frames", "so dull your grandchildren will never borrow it" and "Can travel for hours at 20 km/h without overheating" would probably have been better.

Lock a diver in an empty room for an hour with three ball bearings. On your return, one will be lost, one will be broken and one will be stolen.

Rotor is the guy on the white glider. He told me a great story about his adventure shooting that commercial last night. He was approached by Joe Greblo to teach three pilots to fly mosquitoes, be support crew member, mechanic for the harnesses, fueling them etc. Joe's wife backed out, and Rotor took the spot. Dude got paid and so did Ken Muscio who wanted to go watch and ended up taking Rotors spot once Rotor had to do the flying. Rotor said it was four days of mosquito flying, shooting film, endless free food and drink and getting paid to do what he loved doing. Rotor has got some great stories of his adventures of flying. I have some video tapes of some of his stuff and want to burn it to disk.
