Ad: Renault Clio RS (Speed Dating)

This is speed dating in every sense of the word and these are real "speed daters" in search of their soul mate. Among them is Caroline -- a young, sexy and charming woman. She doesn't have the same concept of "speed dating" as others. That's why a big surprise awaits her contenders... even the most macho among them. These speed daters knew they would be filmed but had no clue why... Is it for a story? A television programme? In any case, it's an experience they won't soon forget. Via - Ads of the World™

Ad: Absolut Vodka (Bottle Light Poster)

The global ABSOLUT Blank campaign offers artists a blank canvas in the shape of an ABSOLUT bottle to express and show their creativity. Around Christmas and New Year, the vodka brand wanted to implement this campaign with a very special execution. The solution was in the timing. Perfect for the darkest time of year, a light installation was created from 197 4.5 Litre ABSOLUT bottles and installed on a mega poster. The colour and intensity of each light could be controlled via an interface, enabling countless light animations and images to be programmed. Replacing the conventional posters that hung there, this eye-catching light installation captivated and stunned over 250,000 passers-by a day on Berlin’s Alexanderplatz, brightening up the longest night of the year .

F1 Training Machine By Technogym

I doubt you'll find this machine at your local gym! The training machine is designed to expose the drivers’ body to the high impact stress that their muscles need to endure during a regular F1 race. The machine also simulates G-force impact quite accurately which drivers cannot be prepared for via traditional training routines. The machine is also the ultimate training regime for F1 drivers that produce rapid acceleration and deceleration via a turn motion which trains the drivers’ bodies in 4 different directions. The driver’s helmet is hooked up to a bunch of cables in the front and rear and the whole mechanism is based on elastic forces to create a realistic simulation. The steering wheel in the machine is also loaded with 25 kg of weight as well as separate 2.5 kg weight stacks that help train the drivers’ arms.  Can you guess which team uses this machine for training?
