Dutch Olympic Fans Power a Volkswagen With Their Cheers

Volkswagen - Up! Holland Up!

Volkswagen Holland‘s Up! Holland Up! campaign is giving Dutch Olympic fans something to scream and yell about. And, if those fans cheer loud enough they can earn a trip to London and tickets for the Olympic Games.

Volkswagen’s Dutch agency ACHTUNG! and application developer B-Lex worked together to modify a new Volkswagen Up! by removing the accelerator pedal and configuring the engine to accelerate based on the sound inside the car.

People were invited to register for the challenge, and would be contacted when the car was in their area. Their challenge was to scream as loud as they could to make the car travel 100 metres. The louder they cheered, the faster the car would go. The fastest time each day would win the tickets to London. There are more tickets available for the people in the 10 videos that are voted the funniest.
