Epic video: Gary Numan plays 'Cars' on cars

We love commercials because they make the mundane fantastic, which is exactly what battery company DieHard did by taking an '80s electro-pop legend and letting him literally play an orchestra of cars.

In this commercial, British music icon Gary Numan, composer of the hit song "Cars" emerges from the shadows of synthesizer history to once again play his tune. This time he's using 24 cars with MP3 sound kits and lighting linked to Numan's keyboard, the entire set-up being powered, of course, by a single DieHard battery. The technology design of the performance was made possible by the arts-meets-science firm know as Syyn Labs.
