Google: Chrome Speed Tests

BBH New York and Google Creative Lab have collaborated in creating a web film that feature a variety of experiments to test the speed of the Google Chrome browser. There are a whole set of real tests that Google do in benchmarking the performance of Chrome. And then there are these: three quirky and playful tests in which Google Chrome is pitted against some very fast things: lightning, sound, and an over-sized potato gun. Rather than try and tell Internet users how fast Google Chrome is, the film demonstrates speed through testing it.

Where are the "forced" comments? lol It's funny how some "forced" ideas are liked while others are not.. That said, it's a good entertaining spot. I highly doubt Chrome is that fast, but anyway.
