Ground-breaking stunt in Milan

Volvo Trucks begin ‘The Chase’

Volvo Trucks has been releasing a series of videos showing imaginative ways they ‘test’ their vehicles, this latest edition involves their FL being chased through a Spanish town by a group of raging bulls.

This daredevil stunt was created with Swedish agency Forsman and Bodenfors.

Gigantic Lottery balls float down the River Thames

To launch the new and improved National Lottery six huge lottery balls have floated down the River Thames on route to Scotland.

The theory behind the idea was that these gigantic symbolised a ‘new, bigger lotto’ that will reward 1,000 lottery players with £20,000 pounds each.

The revamped lottery will aim to fund more National Lottery projects across the UK as well as striving to allow players to win more money.

Take a look at the video below to see this in action, and tell us if this convinces you to buy a ticket.

Time to cuddle!

A giant teddy bear has arrived in Warsaw, Poland offering cuddles, hugs and a cosy place to stop by and take a load off.

Iza Rutkowska, from the Forms and Shapes Foundation, came up with the idea in response to the current statues in Warsaw – because many commemorate wartime experiences or sociopolitical issues.

Bringing a more light-hearted approach to living in Warsaw, the teddy bear travels around the city to beaches and local parks.

Soon the teddy bear named, ‘the cuddly’, will travel to other countries too.

Take a look at the project here and tell us if you spot this teddy bear!

Charlie the hamster steers a Volvo truck!

In this death-defying stunt from Volvo Trucks Charlie the hamster is enlisted to steer a 15 ton Truck through a precarious mountain track in Spain.

The stunt highlighted the launch of Volvo Trucks’ new steering wheel technology that they claim can make even the heaviest trucks easy to manoeuvre.

Charlie was carefully selected from a long list of applicants from an extended casting procedure – where he was trained to stay focused in a noisy, unfamiliar environment.

A specially built hamster treadmill was attached to the steering wheel of the truck, meaning that whichever way Charlie ran steered the vehicle.

Take a look at the stunt in the video below, and tell us if you think any of your pets could steer your car.
