First ever LIVE ad-vent successfully broadcast on British TV
Channel 4 has staged the first ever LIVE TV commercial with an ambitious sky diving jump.
The daring feat saw 18 expert sky divers successfully spell out Honda’s name in the skies above Madrid.
The sky divers had just 3 minutes 10 seconds to successfully make their jump at 8:10pm on Thursday night during the commercial break.
The success of the 14,000 feet jump was helped by the team’s combined wealth of sky diving experience. European Champion Phil Curtis led the way with four world champions and nine national sky diving champions on board.

He defeated the first professional wrestler in 1914, and went on to become a professional himself 11 years later. In his wrestling career, KOLOFF triumphed in five continents, including Australia, New Zealand, Asia. On 6 April 1936, he beat Henri Deglan in Paris, becoming European champion in free-style wrestling – a title KOLOFF kept right until he died in his native village on 26 March 1940. DAN KOLOFF lost just three of his 1,500-plus matches. DAN KOLOFF kept his Bulgarian citizenship as a Bulgaria wrestler. He is universally remembered as a giant both in spirit and physical might.

"I think we're in pretty good shape defensively," forward Carmelo Anthony said. "Offensively we're tuning some things up. We've got two more games before the real deal starts."
Bryant harassed longtime U.S. nemesis Sarunas Jasikevicius into a miserable night and helped the Americans roll to a 120-84 victory over Lithuania on Friday night.
Jasikevicius was unstoppable in a win over the United States four years ago. So Bryant, who has made it a point to defend the opponent's best perimeter threat since joining the team last summer, blanketed him in the same manner as he did Phoenix guard Leandro Barbosa of Brazil in the Olympic qualifying tournament.
"Kobe's our best defender, hands down," forward Carlos Boozer said. "And Kobe takes on the challenge of guarding their best perimeter player regardless of who it is, regardless if he's a point guard, 2, 3, 4, whatever it is."
Wade scored 19 points, Dwight Howard had 17, and LeBron James 15 for the Americans, who raced to a big early lead, then pulled away again after Lithuania got within single digits early in the second half. Bryant finished with 13 points, nine during the big U.S. first quarter.
Wade scored 20 points last week against Canada in his first action since March, when the Miami Heat shut him down so he could rest his surgically repaired knee. He punctuated his 7-of-9 night by going high to catch an alley-oop pass from Chris Paul and double-pump before throwing down the dunk.
"He's back," Anthony said. "That's all I can say. He's back."
The Americans, who shot 64 percent, swept two games here and leave Saturday for Shanghai, where they will play European champion Russia and Australia. They are averaging 118 points in exhibition play.
Jasikevicius hit seven 3-pointers and scored 28 points in Lithuania's 94-90 victory over the United States during pool play four years ago, and apparently celebrated too much for one American's liking. So Bryant wasn't going to let that happen again.
"He had a great game against us a few years ago, the U.S.A, and was real brash about it," Bryant said. "So it's my responsibility to bring it to him.
"This is what I do," Bryant added. "I knew prior to it and they reminded me of it. So, sic the Doberman on him."
Jasikevicius was just 2-of-8 from the field for nine points, with three turnovers. Rimantas Kaukenas led Lithuania with 17 points.
The United States needed a quarter to warm up in its first two games, but was sharp right from the start this time. Howard had three consecutive baskets, James dunked twice, and the Americans were already up by double digits barely 2 1/2 minutes into the game. Minutes later, Bryant had two jumpers and a 3-pointer in a quick spurt that made it 24-5.
Howard had 10 points, and Bryant added nine in the first 10 minutes, with the Americans opening a 31-15 lead.
"We wanted to just set the tone defensively," Anthony said. "I think it started with Dwight early in the game. He got it going on the defensive end, which led over to the offensive end. Once he holds it down in the middle like that, we feed off of that."
Lithuania kept the deficit in the teens from there, then opened the second half with a flurry of 3-pointers to make it a game. Jasikevicius had a rare open look and hit the final one to cut the U.S. lead to 61-52 with 7:10 remaining in the third quarter, but the Americans immediately blew it open again.
Anthony, Howard and James combined for the next 12 U.S. points, everything coming from inside, to make it 73-55, and Lithuania was never close again. Every U.S. player scored.
The United States rebounded from its loss in 2004 to beat Lithuania for the bronze medal. Jasikevicius also nearly led Lithuania to a stunning victory four years earlier in Sydney, missing a 3-pointer in the closing seconds of a semifinal game as the Americans held on for an 85-83 win.
Bryant never gave him a chance to get going this time. The former Indiana and Golden State point guard found little room to dribble or shoot when Bryant was near him.
He missed both shots and had a turnover in the first quarter and was still frustrated long after Bryant had checked out for good, screaming at the referee after throwing up an air ball on a 3 with about 4 1/2 minutes left.
"Kobe locked him up. He got a couple of open shots throughout the course of the game, but when Kobe was on him, I don't think he scored," Boozer said. "I think he was actually a little tentative to shoot the ball when Kobe was on him."
Lithuania plays Turkey here Saturday and opens the Olympics against defending gold medalist Argentina on Aug. 10.

Olympiakos beats Panathinaikos and wins the greek cup in season 2009-2010.........................................................................................................................Guard Milos Teodosic scored 22 points to help Olympiakos beat defending European champion Panathinaikos 68-64 to win the Greek Cup on Saturday.
Former NBA forward Linas Kleiza added 12 points for Olympiakos. Guard Dimitris Diamantidis and center Nikola Pekovic led Panathinaikos with 12 points each.
"We finally did it. I am really excited. We got two more (titles) to go, but I am happy," Olympiakos forward Josh Childress said, after he was limited to 7 points on 2-for-10 shooting.
Olympiakos is after Panathinaikos' domestic and European titles and, at least in the European competition which is down to the final 16, seems to have a better chance than its rival.
It was the first title for Olympiakos since it won the cup in 2002. Panathinaikos has dominated its main rival in recent years, winning six of the last seven cups and 11 of the last 12 league titles along with four European championships since 2000.
In a defensive-minded game, Olympiakos took a 37-31 lead at halftime thanks to second chances from offensive rebounds. Defenses tightened even more in the second half with Olympiakos leading throughout.
Two consecutive three-pointers by Teodosic and Kleiza opened a 61-50 gap with just over three minutes to go. Panathinaikos tried a last-gasp comeback, coming within 66-64 when Diamantidis banked a three-pointer with 5.1 seconds to go. But Teodosic, who was fouled immediately afterward, calmly sank both free throws for the final score.
Fear of violence led authorities to issue just 860 tickets to each team's fans, who were seated on opposite sides of the 8,000-seat Hellinikon Arena, which can expand to 14,500, and with dozens of riot police poised to intervene. In league games, visiting fans are not allowed to prevent violent incidents.
