What Cars Were Made For: Super Slow-Motion Glass Smashing And Giant Water-Balloon Popping With A BMW

June 25, 2012


This is a commercial made by BMW Canada featuring an M5 crashing through a giant glass apple, popping massive water balloons, then smashing through a porcelain target, all shot in super slow-motion. It was pretty cool to watch. Plus there was no, "professional driver on a closed course, do not attempt" warning, so we can recreate the stunts ourselves then sue when we get hurt.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Mallory, deviant and Rosc, who drive their cars the way nature intended: NOT WHILE F***ING TEXTING.

    If I'm not mistaken, this looks like it was filmed on the Black Rock Desert, the same place where Burning Man takes place.

    Nope, salt flats in Utah.

    What a disgrace to use Beethoven's Emperor concerto for a car advert.

  • BMW is my favorite car, but is very costly car. In this car many facility provide and it's most popular car in the world.

    desert + water = ground absorbs the water

    Not that fast.

    ...they just forgot to add the giant puddle effect to the last shot.
