Editor's Pick

McGarry Bowen London makes the seemingly impossible, possible, in this new European ad introducing the Honda CR-V's 1.6 i-DTEC diesel engine, its latest work since the agency won a CR-V pitch from the automaker in July of 2012. Directed by Gorgeous' Chris Palmer, the ad features a series of in-camera optical illusions, a metaphor for what the CR-V has done in bringing a big car experience to a smaller, more budget-friendly vehicle.

See how the agency and production company created the spot in the Making Of film. The spot will run across Europe through the rest of the year.
