Toyota Glass Organs

Toyota Australia is promoting THUMS (Toyota’s Human Model for Safety) with “Glass Organs”, a television commercial featuring a glass crash test dummy. Glass makers and blowers build a human and its organs out of glass before placing it in a Toyota for testing. Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, we don’t see what happens to the glass organs during a crash.

    The setup is lovely, as is the craft of glass-blowing, and the V/O guides us to the inevitable but then leaves us at the crucial moment. Is this part 1 only?

    Why can I not find the credits for the glassblowing artists involved?
