Team Hot Wheels to attempt 2nd world record on Saturday as award-winning campaign continues via Aussie agency Mistress, Los Angeles

loop.pngThis Saturday, June 30, live at the X Games, drivers from Team Hot Wheels will attempt to break their second World Record in a year - this time for racing two vehicles through a six-story double vertical loop, a life-sized version of a real Hot Wheels toy.

Australians will be able to see the stunt as part of a special ESPN package of the X Games telecast.

The activation is just one part of a global marketing campaign led by Aussie expats Damien Eley and Scott Harris, creative directors and founding partners of Mistress in LA.

The campaign will also consist of an episodic wheels.jpgstoryline released throughout the year via TV, digital and social media.

Says Eley and Harris: "The 'Double Loop Dare' features in the storyline of the episodes and at this moment in time it becomes real - live as part of the X Games programme."

What sickeningly self-serving comments from the agency. C'mon... do you think we're idiots? Grow up.

"make the toy bigger". It's not really an idea is it? Cudos to the production company though.

Just the same things over, and over and over again. Saatchis in Sydney just did it *again* for Big W toy sale.

Excellent production. But the idea isn't really there. Who did the production?
