no doubt the video is designed to have people debate how real it is or not
thats the genius of the Volvo marketing team

somewhat related, I really enjoyed the movie 'JCVD'
Much like the volvo video, it makes you wonder if some of it is scripted or not / true or fake
At one point he launches into a monologue about his failings as a human
Its filmed in French, one of his native languages.
I saw it at the Adelaide film festival years ago, there were a few really angry guys in tracksuits at the screening :)

not to take anything away from it, but that video was played in reverse.

And one truck is a rigid, the other has a trailer.

I wondered how he could reverse out like that without the trailer moving incorrectly.

Much easier with a rigid.

I thought he might have been filmed doing this and then added in after. Volvo have claimed that it was real and that he had safety equipment that was digitally removed after filming. So it wasnt just as it looked.

If it was totally faked the whole point of Volvo promoting its electronic steering would be pointless and work against them as an ad.
