RPA Issues ‘Slow Citations’ for Honda

To generate excitement for Honda’s upcoming “Fastest Seat in Sports” sweepstakes offering entrants a chance to ride along with Mario Andretti, RPA Andretti went around annoying people going about their everyday business with “slow citations” for doing things too slowly.

RPA and Honda just released footage of the stunt (featured above), which follows the “Honda Speed Control” as they issue these citations to unsuspecting civilians. Three additional “slow citation” videos will be released preceding the end of the sweepstakes on August 6th. Additionally, RPA will be issuing “slow citations” to unsuspecting brands or products that are too slow on Twitter.

“Honda is leveraging one of the most exciting opportunities in all of sports fandom—the opportunity to win a ride in the Honda two-seat Indy Car driven by Andretti—to broaden awareness of this incredible sweepstakes,” said Susie Rossick, senior manager at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “This humorous video and social effort give us the opportunity to bring attention to Honda’s racing spirit and the advanced technology and performance found in all of our Honda vehicles.”

Here’s RPA’s April Fools Entry for Honda

Fresh off of retaining creative duties at least for longtime client Honda, (phew), RPA has rolled this out on this, the jokiest, prank-filled of days. The Santa Monica-based agency introduces us to the greatest haircut-on-the-go machine known to man with the HondaHAIR, which comes equipped within the Honda Odyssey Touring Elite. What would an announce like this be without some PR speak, and Honda’s head of said department, named “Parsley Thyme” chimes in saying, ““We recognize that our Odyssey drivers are busier than ever, which is why we’ve packed the car with so many conveniences, including this HondaHAIR forward-thinking technology.” During use, we say just avoid the damn potholes, but we should say the HondaVAC in the 2014 Odyssey is an actual accessory.
