Volkswagen: Street Quest

Since 1951, South Africans have loved Volkswagen. In fact, you'll probably find one on every street, road, highway and byway in the country. We were asked to find an innovative way to celebrate the impact that Volkswagen has had on South African streets, and use it to kickstart Volkswagen South Africa's Facebook Page. Volkswagen Street Quest was a Facebook challenge to find as many Volkswagens as possible on South African streets using Google Street View in a custom-designed gaming interface. The game was played over four weeks and the player with the most Pins each week qualified for the Grand Final – a live playoff in which finalists competed for prizes worth R50 000.

It's not the same. The Ogilvy campaign is way better. It has prolonged online engagement with more brand involvement.

It's pretty damn close. The only real difference is this one used google maps, whereas the original required people to find the cars in real life. It's way too close to be a coincidence in my opinion.

VW Golf Story sounds very very promising.. but VW South Africa too is equally intimidating. Loved both the campaigns. Thanks zouz08 for the source.

And then GOD said...
