So I just got what I'm 100% sure is a SPAM email for wrapping my car in a Red Bull graphic and getting paid

Advertisers wanted by RED BULL. You can make no less than $200 WEEKLY to
advertise on your Car.
It is Very Easy and Simple!!!
No Application fees required!!!

Basic details about "Paid to Drive" Concept: RED BULL seeks people but regular
citizens, not professional drivers to go about their normal routine as they
usually do, only with a big advert of "RED BULL" plastered on your Car.
The Ads are typically Vinyl Decals, also known as "Auto Wraps," that almost seem
to be painted on the vehicle,BUT DO NOT LEAVE ANY MARKS ON YOUR CAR!!!
What does RED BULL get out of this type of ad strategy? Lots of exposure and
awareness. The auto wraps tend to be colorful and eye-catching and attract lots
of attention. Plus, it is a mode of advertising with a captive audience. This
program will last for 3 months and the minimum period you can participate is 1

You will be compensated with a $200 (per Week), which is essentially a "Rental"
payment for letting our company use the space. RED BULL shall provide experts
that would handle the Advert placing on your Car. You will receive an up front
payment of $400 (Four hundred dollars) Check for accepting to carry this advert
on your Car and other weekly payments will also come in the form of Checks and

RED BULL looks forward to working with you.

How do I actually do this in real life? If I decide to drive my car every day I have a hour commute each way that cuts through downtown Los Angeles during rush hour and I park my car at a University. I also tend to go places almost every weekend. My girlfriend also has another car incase I want to go somewhere nice and not drive my "subway mobile"

Do any of you have any experience with this? How do I go about whoring my self out to RedBull, Subway, Kinkos, etc.

    Do you have a VW beetle or Mini? Those are the only cars I've ever seen done up like this.

    Here's one for the UK but the trick seems to be to find the advertising company that does it, rather than the sponsor.

    I have seen cars with wrappers on them (RedBull, PeaPod), but I too doubt they'd just email random people. Also the very non-English formatting and tone.

    Maybe post on their FBs? Probably don't do a lot of winter tours, but going to some company-sponsored event might be a good way of getting some low-level advertising contacts anyway.

    Seriously, its like they are not even trying.

    Why not spoof or at least collect some useful personal information?

    I found a couple of sites that seem to point in the right direction for car advertising but it looks like it is a pretty long and competitive process to get accepted. My car is also low profile so that doesn't help either.

    If only I drove a Nissan Cube or Honda Element....

    I've often wondered about doing this, too, actually. But, I've never really been able to find something that seemed legit. Good luck!

    IIRC they don't pay you the cost of removing the decals, and I've heard people say it kind of fucks up your paint job. It's like putting one of those leather bras on your front bumper, you can't really take it off a year later because the paint doesn't match anymore or it's scratched up.

    are YOU on the beer list?
