Smart: Giant shoehorn
In conjunction with the opening of the 2010 Canadian International Autoshow, smart Canada is educating urban dwellers regarding one of the many benefits of driving a smart fortwo. A head-turning marketing initiative in downtown Toronto has wedged a giant shoehorn behind a smart fortwo, visually illustrating that the less than 3 metre smart fortwo can park almost anywhere. The display, parked in various high traffic downtown locations, also imparts the message: “Fits into tight places”, and prompts onlookers to visit “thesmart.ca.” The idea aims to demonstrate that just like your favorite pair of shoes, the smart fortwo can comfortably fit into any lifestyle. The smart fortwo is the most fuel-efficient two-seater in Canada, and it boasts a spacious interior, a 5-star crash safety rating and great agility to dart through traffic while avoiding potholes and other urban hazards. This unique and larger-than-life display playfully conveys that the intelligently designed smart fortwo is the ultimate tool to conquer the city. The ambient initiative will continue throughout the duration of the 2010 Canadian International Autoshow.
