The Ramp



This is some footage shot from a train of a giant ramp that was built in the small German town of Oberpfaffelbachen. The ramp was built with the the intentions of launching a car from Germany into America. There was a documentary made about the ramp, and the town that built it that you can watch here.

Now Please assist me with a little experiment. Look at your clock. What time is it? Now click on the links above. Watch. Explore a bit. Then come back and answer the questions in the comment sections (and no cheating) Thank you.

1. Did you ever find out what car the German town is attempting to launch?

2. If you answered yes to questions 1: How long did it take you to figure out?

3. Did you you use Google to figure it out?

4. Did you care?

Harry said...

1) BMW?

2) 3 minutes

3) no

4) no

Littlejohn said...

I should rephrase question 4.

4. Did the video or site make you want to find out what the ramp was all about and which car they were trying to launch?

T. Willerer said...

1. BMW (looked at the source code)
2. 5 minutes
3. No (source code)
4. A little, but not much.

Valeria Myle said...

1. BMW
2. 5 min
3. Yes
4. I was actually more impressed by the ramp than the car

Ereux said...

1) BMW

2) 3 minutes

3) no

4) The video on your site yes, but the reveal is too early (3 minutes). When you get for sure it's an ad, you skip.

evo said...

1. Some sort of BMW
2. i remember it being on the first link in the history copy.
3. nope
4. no. and the video was far too long. after you get the joke it just gets boring and you're ready to leave the site. it was basically a less funny version of "waiting for gufman".

as of right now, i have zero interest in BMW or learning about them.

Jim Morris said...

1. I didn't.
3. I didn't.
4. I didn't.

You didn't ask, but I spent about two minutes total at both sites before I lost interest and assumed it was all some silly fabrication. Whether this was the fabrication of someone with no life to speak of, or of some advertiser trying too hard, I also didn't care.

Christopher said...

1. BMW 1-Series

2. Maybe 3 minutes

3. No.

4. Not sure.

I wasn't sure where this was going and what the punch line was going to be, but it started to seem overly surreal at one point, believable but surreal. I think this would be at least somewhat more amusing to an American gearhead, one who gets the joke (at least a bit) about Bavaria, and can connect that to to BMW. But once I realized that it was a current car they were launching (one that was just released in the U.S.), it seemed less interesting. It would have been a lot more believable if all of this story had happened 100 years ago.

When I got to line "launhing BMW 1-series".. at the "rampenfest" page I got it..

It was too early in the story.. after that it's just a few chuckles worth to keep on.. I only lasted 20 seconds of the priest in the documentary... jumped to the middle.. lasted 5 more seconds.

anwers
1) Yes, BMW 1-series
2) 2 minutes
3) No
4) Care about what? After I had found out I didn't care much for the story or the movies...

M Guy said...

1. yes
2. not long
3. first thing I did was look at the Rampenfest section the all caps BMW stands out so strongly that it was...
4. pretty much over for me there.

I applaud the effort, but then again, I can see the effort. I'm conflicted.

I can appreciate a spot that doesn't try to suck you in by making you think it's not a spot. But when they try to act like they got one over on you, it gets lame.

The idea that this guy is a marketing genius could've been a decent place to start.

Website was fun. I think it's because I was in on the gag.

Dave Clark said...

1. Yes. BMW 1 series in America (from the website)

2. A couple minutes.

3. No Google needed

4. Didn't really care. I was bored by the video, skipped forward a bit to see if it got more interesting, and then gave up watching. I was hoping to see a car launch off the ramp.

Becca M said...

1. BMW 1-series
2. Less than 5 minutes
3. No, clicked through the nav bar on the website and came across it there
4. The site was interesting to begin with, but the people and story there weren't developed enough for me to care once I'd read the BMW plug (haven't watched the movie because it seemed like it would be long)

1.- yes
2.- 2 minutes
3.- no, rampenfest section

Looking to make a flash into the fashion scene? Or are you just a bolt of inspiration to your friends? Whatever the case if you want to stand out in the streets or embrace the superhero vibe from the summer movies, check out the Style heels
designer shoes, the Flash 2 heels.
It is almost a guarantee, that unless your buds have shelled out $669.00 at the store, you will be the only one who owns the Christian Louboutin shoes.
Completely made of out of leather, the patent leather sleek black shoe stands out brilliantly with the accented “lightening” heel making the shoe completely out of this world. Although not entirely practicable, you will own exclusive bragging rights to the shoe also seen on Rhianna’s feet.
Of course, you will have to have superhero courage to wear these brilliant bolts of inspiration, as the shoes by Christian Louboutin d known as Flash2 have an incredible shoe heel of 5 ¼”.
If you are short, the shoes will clearly show off your sexy legs aided by a peek toe at the end, extending both your feet and your legs. You might consider a bright red toenail polish to accent your feet as well and to ensure a brilliant debut when you set off in your Christian Louboutin shoes.

Ben istanbuldan selda 22 yaşında konfeksiyon içşisiyim Amatör Porno sizleri bekletmeden hemen hikayeme geçiyorum.. Biz 5 katlı bir binanın en üst katında yaşıyorduk ve bir öğlen paydosunda sevgilim beni Anal Sikiş aradı evdeydim çünkü evle iş yerim arasında 2 dakika bile yoktu.. Bende Asyalı Porno sevgilime benden telefon beklemesini söyledikten sonra evin durumuna baktım evde kardeşlerim ve annemin Esmer Porno birkaçtane arkadaşı vardı bu iş imkansızdı tekrardan düşündüm ve çatı katı aklıma geldi sevgilime telefon açıp çatıya çıkmasını ve Fantazi Porno beni beklemesini söyledikten sonra telefonu bir süre elime almadım anneme işe gidiyorum dedikten sonra Gay Porno hemen üst kata çatıya çıkıp sevgilimin
dudaklarına yumuldum az bir süremiz Götten Sikiş vardı ve çok istiyordum onu hemen önünde diz çöküp sikini çıkardım kocaman olmuştu bile... Özlemişti beni HD Porno bitanem başladım sikini yalamaya kafasını öpüyor onu çıldırtıyordum sevgilim saçlarımdan tutmuş ağzımı keyifle sikerken çatı katının kapısı açıldı toparlanamadan Lezbiyen Porno komşunun şişman oğlu efecan gelmişti ben dizlerimin üzerinde sevgilimin Liseli Porno siki ağzımda yakalanmıştım hemen bu halimizi gören komşu oğlu Sarışın Sikiş kaçarcasına gitti.. Sevgilim bir süre güldükten Türbanlı Porno sonra bu şişko neden kaçtı korktu herhalde onu sikicem sandı galiba dedikten sonra bir kahkaha daha attı ben sevgilimin Türk Porno sikine deli gibi saldırıyor yalıyor emiyordum boşalmasını istiyor Zenci Porno sütünü içmek istiyordum sevgilim ağzımı sike sike boşaldı hepsini yuttum bir damlasını ziyan Porno etmedim ve sevgilimle vedalaşıp ayrıldık... Ben her defasında sikiş yapmadan önce yazporno diye olan türkçe siteden Porno izle bölümüne girip seyrediyorum azdıktan sonra şahane sikiş ile gözleri kamaştırıyorum.
