I’ve never heard of something like that, but cinema always attracts people, so I think it is an interesting sponsorship.

Great to see some stuff like this happening. These events may not be the equivalent of the world cup, but it gets our name out there in a way the would probably cost much more through traditional advertising means.

Of topic:

Truly epic interview today with Vladimir Antonov about saab in the swedish TV program named “Gran Turismo” on channel 8. It is recorded during the midnight sun rally. The interview is at the end of the program. But the episode starts with a very tough test drive in a spyker. There is plenty of other interesting cars as well in this episode.

It is season 2 episode 4, you will soon be able to stream it from this web site. I don´t know if it will work outside of sweden though.

Saw the comment from Polismyndigheten and couldn’t resist sharing an interesting fact. The day of the (very exciting) England/India game (they drew), the traffic to Saab.co.uk doubled. I checked the source of the referrals, and sure enough almost exactly half were from cricinfo. I understand that cricket is not everyone’s cup of tea, but it works…
