There is a MINI to satisfy every craving. And MINI Canada is proud to show this off in its latest initiative: the MINI Vending Machine. In the largest-ever fully-interactive night projection in Canada, the MINI Vending Machine showcases the latest 2011 MINIs with a variety of different colour combinations and accessories, ultimately showing that nobody can do customization like MINI can. How does it work? Passersby are able to interact with the projection by texting to a short code to select the MINI of their choice. This triggers the MINI they’ve selected to drive around in a fun animation, making its way down to the bottom of the vending machine in trademark cheeky MINI style. Animations include a MINI whipping through an action-packed pinball machine, a MINI doing some serious doughnuts while the vending machine fills with smoke, and a MINI breaking through the vending machine glass and parachuting its way down. As the animation plays, a personalized-response SMS message is dispatched to the participant, encouraging them to click through to a mobile optimized web page to become a MINI Facebook fan.
