Viral „Germany's funniest crosswalk.“

Volkswagen, 2016


Traffic can feel like a battlefield, especially between pedestrians and drivers. Volkswagen wanted to put an end to this fight on National Road Safety Day. That’s why we hijacked a crosswalk in downtown Cologne, installing a road sign that showed people could cross there - but in a silly way. Just to make traffic a bit funnier and a bit less stressful. And it worked: many pedestrians became very creative with their goofy walks, and smiles broke out everywhere. Of course, we filmed the prank – and were rewarded with over 2.5 million views and 23,000 shares on Facebook. In this way, we proved that fun moments can result from considering others on the road.
