The professional Para-glider, Guillaume Galvani and the 12 year veteran Volvo truck driver, Louise Marriott pulled off this live test.

The Volvo Trucks team has been teasing us with their teasers and trailer for the last 6 days.

It is amazing to see a Para-glider (professional) gliding using the back of a Volvo Truck and enjoying a joy ride all the way uphill even under a bridge (all performed under strict supervision - so don't try this as extreme sports). I am sure the experience by the driver was a new one (also a memorable one) as one does keep the truck load in mind but definitely not a flying passenger that too behind the truck.

During one of the previous Live Tests by Volvo Trucks, 'The Epic Split' and others; one of the kids watching the JCVD's The Epic Split stated that the advertisement is great as it wants me to purchase not one but two Volvo trucks to perform the Epic Split. (That was definitely hilarious as a different perspective was put forth).

Now the whole purpose of the Flying Passenger Live Test - how does the performance and new technology of Volvo be explained. Have a look at the video below to understand the Consistent speed and uphill battle that takes place to keep everything synchronised.

The rise of mobile/cellphone usage has made for some changes or interesting developments in varieties of fields including safety. Cellphone related accidents have risen over the years and are at its peak. People spending time on their cellphone is on the rise, therefore more and more are being used in daily routines. Walking and travelling on different modes of transportation like buses, taxis, subways, trains, airplanes and others have become a common sight to see. Initially texting by SMS was an issue but adding to this, are the social media mobile applications which are pushing people to use more and more of their cellphone. The added usage of unlimited characters of text, photos and video sharing have led to an extended period of usage of cellphones. The assumption of people that they can multi task while driving has let them to use their cellphones, thinking that they are in full control of the situation. But as statistics show, more number of accidents are on the rise due cellphone usage. Below is a video of Responsible Young Drivers (RYD) Belgium. where under control environment, the drivers are asked to type a text while driving. I am sure the point went across to the drivers.

Decent commercial advertisement face-off

France brings us a commercial advertisement face-off which shows how creativity and decency is kept without verbal abuse of each other's products. Many can learn from this. Initially, McDonald put up an advertisement with signboards about the number of McDrive (Drive Thru) and distance closest to the signboard along with the signboard of Burger King Drive Thru which are limited due to late entry into the French market. Have a look at the advertisement below. CLICK HERE to see the below video is French.
