As of today (Wednesday 28th October 2015) the official video (as shown above) has amassed a staggering 1,000,494 views!
The video has left automotive fans around the world in 'hysterics' by enticing them into believing that they are about to see a ‘never been done before’ hybrid turbo that ‘is so different to any other in the world.’ The video sees a monstrous turbocharger being worked on in the TD's industrial workshop, only to leave watchers in 'fits of laughter' as they find out that the ‘New Breed of Turbo’ is actually hamster powered!
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported the video, including customers around the world and some of the world’s most popular automotive focused social media accounts including Car Scene UK, Street FX and Speed Society. The video has received great feedback including comments such as “I can’t stop laughing”, “To everyone responsible for this commercial, Thank You!!!! I love it” and “I wasn't expecting to laugh as hard as I did! Great video!”
Peter Marsh, Founder and Managing Director of Turbo Dynamics, has said: “the success of this video really has been phenomenal and what is even more impressive is when you delve into the analytics of the video you see that the viewing time tallies up to a staggering 1,158,200 minutes and it has been viewed in 217 different countries!
They say imitation is the greatest form of flattery, but disappointingly many companies around the world have actually tried to claim our video as their own by removing all signs of Hybrid Turbos branding and replacing it with their company logos. In my view a deplorable act as it takes away from the hard work that went into producing the video by the TD team.
I would like to thank Brink Media for their involvement and I would also like to stress that no hamsters were harmed in the making of the video… however I have been informed by the daughter of the employee who owns the hamster that our furry friend has been making some diva demands since becoming an ‘internet sensation’!”
