Honda Impossible Dream Extended for 2010

Honda’s 2005 commercial, “Impossible Dream”, has been re-released in 2010 with an extra 30 seconds, replacing the original hot air balloon ending with a Honda jet rising from the waterfall to take our hero on his fantastic voyage. The song, featuring actor Simon Day, singer Andy Williams and voiceover artist Garrison Keillor, will air across 28 markets across Europe and will include the Honda jet, the CR-Z Hybrid Coupe, the hydrogen-powered FCX Clarity, the Honda robot Asimo and Honda solar panels.
