Mitsubishi :::Download an actual car

DESCRIPTION: Online scavenger hunt
BRAND: Mitsubishi 
BRAND OWNER: Mistubishi 
CATEGORY :Automotive 
REGION :Spain 
DATE :May 2009 - Dec 2008 
To promote its new small car Colt model amongst a young tech-savvy audience and to coincide with the Barcelona Motor Show, Mitsubishi wanted to create a suitably high-tech online experience.
Mitsubishi’s solution is a type of internet scavenger hunt. Users must find and download 30 parts of a car scattered around various sites in order to win a free car. 


Visitors to “BajateunColtgratis.com” (downloadafreecolt.com) find an image of the 30 parts that have been distributed around the internet in banners on main portals (such as Spanish newspaper El Pais) as well as various peer to peer sites (including eMule, eDonkey and BitTorrent). Participants must register on the site and search for and download the various parts. 


As a registered user, you only need to click on the banner with the car part and it automatically downloads to your account. Users who find more than one of the same part can swap them with other players in the exchange room created by Mitsubishi. They can also share information about how to find the parts in a forum. 
A widget provides live information of what is going on in the game as well as hints and tips



The site also features a promotional video of an actual Colt being disassembled by mechanics before the parts are distributed on the web. 
The game will continue to run for another week so late joiners will need to make up for lost time. The first person to collect all 30 pieces of car will win a Colt

Pearle:::Steamy room


BRAND OWNER:Pearle 
CATEGORY:Pharmaceuticals/ Healthcare 
REGION:Belgium 
DATE:May 2009 - Dec 2008 

Contact lenses are often seen as the more aesthetically pleasing alternative to glasses, but they are not always seen as being more practical. 

Optician brand Pearle was keen to emphasise the benefits of wearing contact lenses to those who are attached to their spectacles and encourage trial of their daily and monthly lenses.

Pearle created a web-based game at thesteamyroom.be which illustrated the merits of wearing contact lenses. But rather than looking at the comfort of wearing contacts, Pearle took a more humorous angle. Players get to select whether they want to check out semi-clad men or semi-clad women and then enter the respective changing room with a first-person viewpoint through a pair of rimmed glasses. As soon as you enter the room and start to see tantalising glimpses of flesh, the glasses begin to fog up and they require frantic polishing with the mouse curser to clear the view. The message reads: “there are moments when it’s better to wear contacts”. The site has a viral element encouraging users to share the game and also offers free trials of the contact lenses.
