Yeah, that's the most ridicoulous part of that ad... I don't know what they were thinking, the remaining parts were pretty plausible, but that just makes the whole ad look stupid. :(

I think those tires were weighted . . . something heavy on the inside that makes it roll like that . . .

I think they calculated it perfectly for everything to fall into place.

On mythbusters they made a gigantic Rube Goldberg machine  that WAS NOT faked. Though I would have faked it too...  ;D
