"YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME! HELLO? YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME!!!"

The Parisian Pinball Parking Challenge!

The driver who performs the most ruthless parking attempt, and posts the highest score, wins a new Ford with parking assist.

It is a promotion, so how much of this was staged? By that I mean how many of the drivers were in on it? How can you not notice a giant noisy electronic thing above you on a scaffold, over the top of a suspiciously small parking space.

Plus, I’m sure that as soon as anyone saw the guy get a “New Record”, someone else would have come along and set an even newer new record.

I guess parking in Paris really is that hard to come by.

In Paris, people will do whatever it takes to fit into a parking space. We took this as an opportunity to promote Active Park Assist, a Ford Technology that helps even the worst drivers park their cars effortlessly.

We installed a giant pinball (scoreboard) over a free parking space and programmed the bumpers of the front and rear cars to react as pinball bumpers. The more the drivers hit the bumpers, the higher their score.
