Honda Grrr Deisel Flash Game
October 12, 2004 3:09 PM   Subscribe

Honda + Diesel + Bunnies + Garrison ± Alice in Wonderland = Flash Game! Taking the Corporate Flash game to new levels of abstraction, Honda UK, Garrison Keillor and Weiden+Kennedy have teamed up again to sell quiet diesel engines... with bunnies.

The ad that helps all this make *some* sense can be found on the Honda UK site that is linked. I still can't figure out in what meeting someone said, "Let's sell to 8-year-olds!"

I really hope Honda introduces its Diesel engine to the US market. If oil prices keep going up, they may become more attractive to consumers. Modern engines are a lot quieter and cleaner than they used to be, but it looks like the Honda engine takes it even farther.

it's so pretty. I'm lost on the point though.

It looks like they've got the all-important diesel-buying grammar school student market taken care of. Can the diesel-buying preschool student market be far behind? You don't want the competition sewing up that segment before you do.

You want loyalty in your diesel customers? Start 'em young...

Well, it appeals to 8 year olds - my son really enjoyed the commercial and the game

Bring on the Diesels! In the latest jobs creation bill, they are supposed to be giving a 1 cent rebate per percentage of BioDiesel used. So if you use B20, which is 20 percent BioDiesel/80 percent regular diesel; you would get 20 cents per gallon tax credit.
