BMW US: Rampenfest – BMW 1-series Viral campaign*

27 06 2008

Now here is what I call a really funny viral campaign (maybe because I live in Germany ;o)….

Some of you might already know this one, but for those who don’t…for the introduction of the BMW 1-series in North America, BMW US have created a fully integrated viral campaign.

The story line is really funny. The little (fake) Bavarian town Oberpfaffelnbachen is building a 454 meter-high ramp that will launch the BMW 135i over the European landscape and across the Atlantic into the US. To have the world participate Jeff Schultz (fake) documentary filmmaker produced a 30 min film (www.rampenfest.com).

Here is the trailer…

Video: Rampenfest Trailer – 1:40 min

The campaign is integrated across a number of channels beginning with the official Rampenfest Film Website, the offical Oberpfaffelbachen town website that feat. the MISS RAMPENFEST Competition, Jeff Schultz’s Facebook site (with approx 800 friends) and his blog.

Also worth seeing are Jeff’s Youtube page and the Friendster page of Franz Brendl the Oberpfaffelbachen town’s council.

HUMMER UK: H3 The ultimate boy’s toy*

5 04 2008

Here is a really cool Guerilla PR Stunt. HUMMER UK have launched the first right hand drive version of the H3. To do so they created a giant – like no other – toy box and placed it infront of a TOYS R US store.

To further promote the all terrain functionality of the H3, Hummer UK decided to build a remote controlled version of the real car and have people test it for real…pretty cool!

As most of will have read there is a lot of tease activity going on for the upcoming Simpson’s Movie release on July 27th, 2007.

From the really cool minisite that features mini games, a Simpsons configurator (Create your own) and naturally movie trailers…

…to the 7/11 Promo in the US where they re-dressed the 7/11 markets to “Apuh’s KWIK-E Mart’s” inside out :o)

The best one yet is an editorial piece in the August edition of Harper’s Bazaar.

Together with Linda Evangelista
