Yea, I've seen that one before. I'm pretty sure that there is some creative editing in there. Check out the tires rolling uphill on the ramp. The last one stops and then starts rolling again. Physics?

no editing...they spent millions on that commercial...it's all real. the wheels are weighted at the top which gets them rolling uphill.

Sean is correct. It took many days and nights and over 600 takes for it work perfectly. No camera tricks used for this one.

There actually is one minor piece of editing in the video. It's two videos joined together when the muffler rolls across the floor.
The studio they filmed it in wasn't big enough to fit the whole thing in.
