Toyota Hilux: Unbreakable

Brief:
Take Toyota Hilux's brand promise "Unbreakable" to a new generation of consumers. Encourage these consumers to visit the showroom and/or arrange a test drive.

Solution:
Develop a screensaver, using the motion sensor built into the latest generation of laptops, to deliver a truly interactive experience and demonstrate the "unbreakability" of the 2008 Hilux. Distribute this to a database of potential Hilux buyers, and encourage them to forward it onto their friends. This allowed users to click through and arrange a test drive at their local dealership.

Results:
Marked increase (above 60% in some areas) in Hilux enquiries reported by dealerships. Corresponding increase in actual test drives. Informal dealer feedback described the campaign as "compelling", "entertaining", "very engaging" and "really helps to reinforce that a Hilux is unbreakable".

How Ironic; the car is unbreakable, but you total your laptop in the process.

Do you really? I think the laptop can take a bit of shaking around. :)

nice idea... but:

downloaded it with my macbook pro - the installation process is a mess.
and it didn't work...

similar software is easier to install and does work...

so nice idea, bad execution

This is a bigger hoax than the chupacabras. The motion sensor in MacBooks is for protection of the hard disk drive in case of a violent shake or fall. Not for maneuvering like it's a PS3 controller. This would be good in an ideal world, but not in Ads of the world. This sucks!!!

Well, for a hoax, it works pretty well.
The motion sensor CAN be used like a ps3 controller.

Then, I take back my words, but why Mr. Jobs is keeping this a secret? Why is it not as a feature in my MacBook's user manual?

It's supposed to be sort of a game.
