    Exclamation Hot Wheels' Twitter-enabled vending machine coughs up free C

    Filed under: Marketing/Advertising, Videos, Chevrolet, Misc. Auto Shows, Toys/Games, Canada

    There are still plenty of companies that haven't gotten the whole social media thing down pat yet, but Hot Wheels isn't one of them. During the recent Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, Hot Wheels created a lot of buzz for itself by using a vending machine filled with Chevrolet Camaro models, but instead of money to get the cars, show attendees just had to use Twitter.

    To get the free car, people were asked to send a tweet to Hot Wheels Canada saying what they liked about the new Hot Wheels Edition Camaro, and including the #ChevyCIAS hashtag. This seemed to be a popular marketing tool, too, as AdWeek reports that the @HotWheelsCanada account more than tripled in followers during the course of the 10-day show. Looking ahead, this could open up even more innovative marketing possibilities using social media.

    Check out the video posted below to watch how it works, and while the auto show has ended and the free-car giveaway has too, we're almost certain that some of the 1,500 freebies will make their way onto eBay.Continue reading Hot Wheels' Twitter-enabled vending machine coughs up free Camaro diecasts

    Would have been nice if the Philly Auto Show was giving out hot wheels promo cars. Would have made a nice addition to my collection. Instead all we got were some oversized cards of the hot wheels packaging with the Camaro on it.
