Home Gallery Interactive (video) Volkswagen Sound-Driven VW Up Making Of Volkswagen: Sound-Driven VW Up Making Of A car powered by cheers. Published on Jul 27, 2012 Editor's Pick Achtung Netherlands, which last year created what might have been our favorite social media campaign ever, is back with another brilliant little stunt for Volkswagen of the Netherlands. To give London the most fanatic and loud Dutch Olympic team supporters, the agency created an "orange-motion technology" that powers the car by noise. The special edition Volkswagen up! has a decibel recorder linked to the accelerator. Cheering sounds within the car are converted into motion, so the louder the cheering, the faster the car moves. There are, according to the press note, some safety features that limit the speed at 30 km per hour, and a second set of pedals for a co-driver. Daily competitions in the Netherlands will ask enthusiastic Dutch fans to try to race the vehicle through their cheers on a 100-meter track, to win tickets to the Olympics. There is an accompanying television spot (by Comrad) and a making of video as well. Rate this Ad You must be registered to rate the ad.
