likely to be hanged…

Some Friday humor…

wag \WAG\, noun:
A humorous person; a wit; a joker.
Wag in this sense perhaps comes from the obsolete wag-halter, “a rogue; one likely to be hanged.”

And, for the visuals…and humor, conceive of this as being entirely for real — no CGI here:

When the ad was pitched to senior executives, they signed off on it immediately – without any hesitation – including the costs. There are six, and only six, hand-made Honda Accords in the world. To the horror of Honda engineers, the filmmakers disassembled two of them to make the film. Everything you see in the film (aside from the walls, floor, ramp, and complete Honda Accord) is a part from those two cars. The voice-over is Garrison Keillor. When the ad was shown to Honda executives, they liked it and commented on how amazing computer graphics had become. They fell off their chairs when they found out it was all for real. Oh… and about those funky windshield wipers. On the new Accords, the windshield wipers have water sensors and are designed to start doing their thing automatically as soon as they become wet. It looks a bit weird in the commercial.

wishing well —
