The Volkswagen Drive In

on November 9, 2007 by Martina Comments

From The Netherlands, a uber cool site to celebrate Volkswagen’s 60th anniversary in the country and challenge your music knowledge. Everything it’s in Dutch, but don’t panic, just wait for the site to load, and then click on “speel het spel” to start playing… You have to match every song with the decade it belongs to… I did 11 at the first attempt, and you?

Drive your Tiguan in the jungle

on October 17, 2007 by Martina Comments

In France, Volkswagen is launching the new Tiguan 4×4 with a driving advergame in the jungle. I played the 30″ demo, and it looks very nicely done and quite fun to play, especially because when driving you also have to avoid the animals crossing the street…

The only annoying thing is that you have to download and install a dedicated plugin to enjoy the 3D experience, and I fear this will keep out from the game quite a lot of people. via Le Buzzer.

Night Driving experience by Golf

on August 21, 2007 by Martina Comments

And all the people of the lulled and dumbfound town are sleeping now… This is the incipit of Under Milk Wood is a poem Dylan Thomas wrote over fifty years ago that has now become the main theme of a strongly emotional Volkswagen campaign around the concept of Night Driving. The Tv commercial, created by DDB London, is lovely, inspiring and slightly touching. But on there’s more than a brilliant video to discover. For example, there is the “usual” call to action for user generated content. Nothing new you would say, but I’m interested, since they’ve partnered with Yahoo!’s platform Jumpcut in order to provide consumers with an easy (and online) tool to create their videos. At the same time I believe it’s weird but interesting to note that they’ve opted for a par condicio (I feel so Latin tonight!), using Google Maps to present and allow people to submit a series of great “night drives” around Europe. I think the site is online already since a couple of months, so apologies if I’m late, but I thought it was worth to keep track on this campaign and this positive online experience created by Tribal DDB London. via [bluurb]
