Case Study :: Nissan Rogue
With the 2007 launch of its Rogue crossover vehicle, Nissan tasked advertising agency TEQUILALos Angeles
to develop an innovative, interactive campaign targeting male GenXers.
Partnering with EyeWonder, TEQUILA provided
ads featuring three different interactive games
to showcase Rogue’s quick handling and aggressive
styling. For its version of the Marble Maze game,
Nissan was the first U.S.-based automotive advertiser
to integrate Papervision 3-D technology into their Flash 9
designs using EyeWonder’s flexible AdWonder
component. The game engaged users to “drive” the
Rogue through city streets and collect bonus points.
TEQUILA also devised interactive video ads that
utilized EyeWonder’s geo-targeting capabilities. Because

unique interactions with a total interaction rate of
34.75 percent, four times above EyeWonder’s
