Volkswagen Digital Media Day

On Friday I attended the very first Volkswagen Digital Media Day at the Canadian International AutoShow. I have a total soft spot for the VW brand thanks to my Baby Jetta and I was very excited to learn about the 2013 lineup and other new and exciting things happening with Volkswagen. We were greeted by Peter Blackwell Director of Marketing for VW Canada and VW product Planners, ready to answer all our questions.

It was exciting to be one of the first few people to see the TV commercials for the Jetta Turbocharged Hybrid.

Haha) I loved driving it so much that I felt like I was cheating on my car with a younger and faster car.

Well, the good people at VW used the pictures from this innovative commercial and came up with a fun social experiment called the “VW Art Heist”. Lets just say some lucky “heisters” from Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal got to take home some poorly secured limited edition prints home. It’s so funny to watch this video and how people react to seeing frames of pictures just hanging randomly somewhere. I wasn’t one of the lucky few who just happened to bump into these prints, but I’m so glad to hear that this campaign has a second phase and it starts tomorrow, Thursday the 20th, till Sunday the 23rd! Starting from 10am EST/7am PT follow @VWCanada on Twitter to find clues about where the frames are located in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. It’s going to be a mad hunt across these cities for sure. I have a few hours in the morning before …
