Volkswagen Tiguan: Not found

March 08, 2013Filed under Online and Automotive

A special action has been surprising those looking for the off-road Tiguan, from Volkswagen, on the internet: a release published on several portals, Facebook and the brand's institutional sites informs everyone that the car ran away from its own site to travel the world. The announcement takes the users to the Tiguan site, which was replaced by a fake Error 404 page ( saying that the car took off to enjoy life and that to find it you have to click “search.” When doing that, the person is directed to the Pinterest social network where he/she will see all the model photos published on the web around the world: Created by AlmapBBDO, the “Not Found” action reinforces Volkswagen off-road model concept, the SUV with a high level of safety, comfort and drivability. Until the morning, the fake page will replace the information about the Tiguan and its image on Volkswagen's institutional site, the VW portal Premium site, the brand’s Brand Channel and even the model's page. In it, the phrase “If you want to enjoy life with it, click here” will take the user to a map of Brazil where he/she can locate the closest dealership to find the Volkswagen Tiguan.
