Volvo’s Valet Surprise

Volvo’s Valet Surprise
 

Being a parking valet at a ritzy casino can’t be all that bad. An evening spending brief encounters with other folks’ motoring exotica. It should be sweet. Right until the moment you’re presented with the task of parking a Volvo truck with a trailer hitched to it.

Volvo Trucks has a knack for awesome advertisements. Notable hits include the one where Jean-Claude Van Damme does the splits. Their new one titled The Casino captures the priceless reaction of a new casino valet via hidden cameras. Volvo wanted to demonstrate the ease with which their new I-Shift Dual Clutch gearbox operates.

Now we don’t actually see the valet parking the truck – that could have resulted in more damage than Volvo had planned for. But the look on 23-year-old Ambrogio Adani’s face elicits a mix of amusement and empathy. Volvo followed-up with this behind the scenes video.
