Set to the sound of Julie Andrew’s ‘My Favorite Things,’ the ad took 16 people four days to make. At around $820,000, the one minute ad cost 62 times more than the cost of making a real Skoda. However, the film’s director, Chris Palmer, was convinced it was worth the money: “Thank God we did it for real,” he says. And he’s not the only one; the 2007 ad is fondly remembered, and did the Skoda brand all sorts of favors. But what happened to the cake? Unfortunately, it ended up being donated.
