collectibles: Team GB window sticker

I'M BEHIND TEAM GB. window sticker

The Olympic Games take place this summer in London and MINI is an official partner of Team GB.  As we have seen, MINI created a MINI London 2012 special edition for the UK for the London Olympics.  MINI UK has built the Great British Roar advertising campaign around its support of the Great Britain Olympic team.  MINI UK’s Facebook page has a MINI Great British Roar app which let’s you record a roar to inspire Team GB and win prizes.  As part of this promotion, MINI UK posted an offer on its Facebook page offering free window stickers:

Free Bee alert! it’s not often in this world that we get something for nothing but the kind MINI people at MINI UK are giving away free car stickers supporting Team GB in the run up to London 2012 and Ocean MINI couldn’t resist sharing it with you – click the MINI UK link above or email facebook@mini.co.uk then send us a snap of yours in your car! – the best picture will win some goodies!

Thanks to MINI UK for sending one across the Pond.

MORE TURN. LESS BURN. sticker ad (back)

DRIVE LIKE THERE IS A TOMORROW.
At MINI, we believe you can hug trees and corners at the same time. That the letters RPM can play nice with the letters MPG. And that adrenaline is a renewable resource. It’s this belief that led us to create a car with the best CarFun Footprint on the road. Display your sense of pride in getting the most out of every single mile you motor by affixing this badge to the boot of your MINI.

Like the WHIPTASTIC HANDLING sticker ad we featured in October, today’s “MORE TURN. LESS BURN.” sticker ad contains a thick, simulated metal sticker for the boot of your MINI.

Let’s show the world who’s got the wheel. Let’s make sure they know who’s riding shotgun. Let’s pick the perfect alias. Let’s pretend we’re fighter pilots. Let’s take it way too seriously. Let’s not take it seriously at all. LET’S MOTOR.

The front of the ad shows “Geronimo” written on the door of an Electric Blue MINI Cooper S. On the back are white cursive letters stickers to put your nickname on your MINI.

Bug Bull's-Eye stickers ad (back)

LET’S PLAY BUG BULL’S-EYE. Let’s test our reflexes. Let’s head to the Everglades in August. Let’s see what a dragonfly had for breakfast. Let’s find out what a mayfly had for lunch. Let’s move quicker than a gnat. Let’s stick a blood-sucking mosquito right in the bull’s-eye. LET’S MOTOR.

Yet another interactive MINI ad, the Bug Bull’s-Eye stickers ad insert contains two bull’s-eye stickers on the back.  These stickers are to be affixed to the MINI side mirrors and used to play a game.  The “Rules & Regulations” are given on the back of the ad as well.

RULES & REGULATIONS. Anyone with a valid driver’s license can play. If any part of the bug (splatter or body part) touches multiple scoring zones, the higher score should be tallied. Players must set own time, distance or limit of bug hits before starting a new game. Remember to obey all local traffic laws and wildlife preservation acts. Hitting an endangered insect constitutes immediate forfeiture (see below for reference). The death or dismemberment of any butterfly is also grounds for disqualification (and a moment of silence would be nice). To learn more about MINI’s handling and its $16,999* MSRP go to MINIUSA.COM.
