Corpse in the Trunk

russian taxi with a corpse in the trunk

Have you ever seen a taxi car cruising across the city with a dead man’s hand pulling out of the trunk? Most of people didn’t, at least until now.

this is volga russian car with a corpse in the trunk

One of the taxi companies in St. Petersburg city started decorating their cars with the corpse hands jutting out of the cars trunks.
 This is Volga GAZ Russian car, cruising across the St. Petersburg city with a “corpse” in the trunk.

Volga is a GAZ company Russian passenger car

People are really amused seeing this. From some decent distance this effect seems to be very realistic.

russian people are taking photos of themselves with russian car volga and a corpse in the trunk

That seems to work, people are spotting the catchy cars, making photos of them and through this are better remembering the brand name of the taxi company. I have not heard that someone tried this trick before.

 This is Renault Logan, also with a corpse

That seems to work, people are spotting the catchy cars, making photos of them and through this are better remembering the brand name of the taxi company. If you’ll travel to Russia or to St. Petersburg, you can pre-order such a car to meet you in the airport, there seems to be the taxi company url on this white car clearly seen.

 I have not heard that someone tried this trick before, but nice try it is.

  1. I think it was a global campaign, check this one out:

    Anyway, this blog is very entertaining. Keep up the good work.

  2. Ha ha… that’s pretty cool! I’ve never seen that before, but that would definitely attract attention. I wish the cabs here in Japan would do something fun like that. Anyway, thanks for posting all the pics!

  3. This was clearly edited on photoshop, if you actually look closely, you can tell that it has been cut out of an image using photoshop,

  4. Dang this is a sopranoos mafia car. You know it’s not true about Russian mafia, Russian mafia doesn’t exist as it is portrayed in the west. We don’t have a mafia in US! Russian mafia almost entirely consists of Jews you must realise that.

  5. It’s called “guerilla marketing”. It’s all about making your brand worth talking about. (Google for “Seth Godin” + “Purple cow” or “funnel” 😉
