Zoom Pimp Ambassador Crowdfunding Indiegogo
Cars don’t get much sexier than this!

You may have seen our risqué crowdfunding campaign to “Pimp Out” a Hindustan Ambassador.  It was a success!  It warms our hearts to know we have such amazing and enthusiastic members.  What started off as a fun way to engage our members turned into media frenzy the likes of which we couldn’t ever have anticipated!

In total we raised $1069 – 69 dollars more than our target!  We swear, we didn’t rig that number, but it couldn’t be more fitting *wink*.  And over 1,200 people posted the campaign on their own Facebook Timelines!

Our members weren’t the only ones who noticed this sexified project!  Several media publications throughout Bangalore all wrote a feature story on this campaign!  You can read about it in Yourstory.in, Bangalore Mirror, NextBigWhat, DriveSpark, and Shrindihi Hande’s Blog!

If all of this wasn’t enough, the Economic Times also jumped on board and wrote a feature that highlighted not only the Ambassador campaign, but our two free hours of driving credit on Election Day to help people get to the polls and vote!

As David states in our video, “When we take our pants off things tend to get…VIRAL.”  That is exactly what happened with this campaign!  David and Greg are so excited that they STILL haven’t put their pants back on! (everyone at the office is starting to get worried….)
