Want to watch something strangely beautiful? We suggest the BMW M5 footage crafted by BMW of Canada in the video below. No scantily clad women, no overtly gratuitous tire smoke – just a 560-horsepower super sedan doing its best impression of a bullet.

Shortly after getting "shot" out of a makeshift barrel, the M5 hurdles its way at something we approximate to be its artificially limited top speed of 155 miles per hour at a series of targets, taking them out one by one in slow motion.

It's two minutes of your life that we don't think you'll regret spending. See for yourself by scrolling down below.

      people are spoiled rotten. 50 years ago, if you had said "we're going to drive a car 150mph through a tube, blast thru a 15 foot tall apple made of sugar-glass, pop three enormous balloons filled with water, and slow it all down so you can enjoy it with music" - people would've paid to see it.

      So are those the actual engine sounds, or did they have the playstation guys fake this as well...?

        If it was Polyphony it would've sounded like a vacuum now if they got Turn 10 to do it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BZ8k0TzMMU

      Meh. Just another CGI-filled BMW ad. They should've revived this old ad somehow :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plxNfU-PA2c

        Yes, there was a much more subtle point in the E39 commercial. I agree their updating of this concept was not perfect. However, the new commercial has engine sounds that are realistic, as long as you have a microphone mounted on the rear bumper. And I like them. Hearing the E39 revved in that manner, for that period of time, would have been a commercial never forgotten...

      If that barrel was rifled, I would have expected to see the M5 come out spinning. BTW Autoblog, it's 'hurtling', not 'hurdling'.

      Fun to watch and a good commercial that people will seek out on their own. My only gripe is the burnout at the beginning. The gun barrel tunnel doesn't have a flat floor, so only the sidewalls or the edge of the tread at best would be making contact. Doing a burnout in these conditions would blow out the tires in short order. And now back to reality...

      Just what we need... another liberal preaching about restricting guns as we watch a car commercial. Give it a rest.
