My wife just walked in with a full-page glossy ad from the Sunday paper - Hampton Roads, VA "Daily Press." Purex (laundry detergent) is advertizing a "Create a Green-T and win a smart fortwo" contest (www.PurexSavesGreen.com). It depicts a R/B/B 451 passion coupe, fogs, pods.

How'd they (a corporation) do that? Must'a used a front-man. Giving away a slightly pre-owned car?

Actually they could have sent the CFO of Dial Corp., Scottsdale, AZ over to sc Chandler to cross the Brand Manager's palm with a ham sandwich (containing a $50G note instead of lettuce) with a hint that he would buy the first available passion orphan. The dealer would be allowed to sell such a car to anyone at that point, with an original title.

Just my hunch, but smart is probably bringing in "company" cars that are over and above those reserved and for dealer demos, etc. Those cars can be doled out for things like this promo. :)
