Fallon's sequel to the Cadbury "Gorilla" spot

Here's the sequel, "Trucks," to last year's "Gorilla" ad for Cadbury. As with its predecessor, it features an unbeatable soundtrack: Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now" which accompanies the action—airport vehicles having a drag race on the runway after the last plane at night leaves the airport. There's also the rather thin connection between the brand at the end and the rest of the commercial, though perhaps I'm taking my advertising too literally these days. Via Fallon London, whose home page, for now, has the ingredients it took to make the commercial. It's already spawning remixes, such as this one, which mashes up footage from the commercial with the BBC's coverage of the disastrous opening of Heathrow's T5 terminal last week.
