When I first read about this contest, it made a lot of sense. It was a promotion for the sub-compact Chevrolet 2014 Spark, and it required contestants to parallel park the 12-foot long car in a New York City space of just 14 feet. The point, of course, was to dramatize the car’s ability to fit into really tight city spaces.
I first read about it here, and then checked it out. As of this morning, the YouTube video, shown below, had garnered two hits. The total number of contestants was 4. So that seems a little weak.
Yet, I am blogging about it. And two of the contestants are bloggers. It got written up in the New York Times, the Daily News, and I am sure other media outlets.
So on a scale of 1-10, it has to rate at least a 7. At least to me. Sure, it didn’t go “viral.” But it certainly had an above -average temperature.
All your ideas don’t have to be Grand Prix winners. But when an idea seems right, as this one did, you have to go for it. Because you might be amazed at the mileage you will get out of it.
Got the idea?
