How They Made This Video

At the start of the month I asked a question - how did they make this video? I was talking about an astonishing pop video which is like a crazy Heath Robinson invention. In the US read Rube Goldberg - every country seems to have a description of this type of crazy machine.

Now we know. According to an article in The Sunday Times, this entire sequence is real. No CGI, no post production invisible edits. The £60,000 contraption took two months to build, and failed 47 times on the first day of shooting. It worked perfectly the next day - three times.

I watch it again with renewed respect, and awe.
