Ad of the Day: Forza 6 - A history of racing

Today’s clever ad of the day comes courtesy of Xbox and Forza 6 Motorsport.

In the commercial we see one of the Forza cars race through video game history, passing Pro Am, Pole Position, Chase HQ and Outrun before smashing into the new game.

The campaign aims to show how every pixel and line of code has been leading up to this, with the dreams of racing gamers from the last 40 years or so finally realised in shining HD.
