The song "Walking on a Dream" by Empire of the Sun plays as a Honda engineer day dreams of his new creation, which is animated throughout this commercial. At first the new Honda Civic drives through an opening in back of the engineers head and then after receiving an engine, takes off down the imaginary road built for it. "Direct from our imagination. The all-new civic."

Aside from the music being awesome, the attention to detail in the graphics is pretty amazing. Especially at second 20. The way they merged real recorded video with animation is seamless. Very impressed.
I can't believe how good this commercial really is. They really capture the mood of the song really well throughout. This is now probably one of my favorite commercials of all time. Great work, Honda!
