There's nothing that grabs the attention of men quite like the combination of hot cars and pretty women. And that is exactly what gets leveraged in this campaign for Sixt, a rental car company.
We see fashionable photography shots of gorgeous sports cars from the likes of Lamborghini and Cadillac paired off with uber attractive women.
But that's not the interesting part. What's special about this campaign is that it directs you to the website of a fictional car hire company that claims to be cheaper and better than Sixt.
One click on the menu and the whole site (www.gibsnisch.de) falls down (at which point some may be offended).
We've seen many computer companies fight it out in ads. So to use a fake website is both interesting and unusual.
