With 188KW of power, the Volkswagen’s Golf R is the fastest Volkswagen ever. To create hype around this awesome vehicle, we hired people to walk around busy public areas with prosthetic mouth pieces that mimicked the physical effects of G-Force. These eye-catching promoters wore branded t-shirts that supported our message and prompted people to test drive the new Golf R. For the price of a quarter-page magazine ad, we created an unusual activation that communicated the New Golf R’s extreme power in an interesting and amusing way.

We are sorry
The News of the World was in the business of holding others to account.
It failed when it came to itself.
We are sorry for the serious wrongdoing that occurred.
We are deeply sorry for the hurt suffered by the individuals affected.
We regret not acting faster to sort things out.
I realise that simply apologising is not enough.
Our business was founded upon the idea that free and open press should be a positive force in soceity. We need to live up to this.
In the coming days, as we take further concrete steps to resolve these issues and make amends for the damage they have caused, you will hear more from us.
