German Truck Art

I recently got sent a email that has apparently been floating around since at least 2005. It’s pretty cool, so I’m gonna share it with you all.

The skinny on the email is that these 7 pictures were entries for the 2005 Rhino Rolling Advertisement Award in Germany. Competing advertising companies could submit conceptualizations of what their ad truck might look like in real life, and the entries were voted on. The winners of the contest were then published on Rhino Rolling’s website here. A lot of them were very creative and clever so it’s not surprising that these photos are still floating around. What isn’t as well circulated is that some of these conceptualizations were actually made into real trucks for the award celebration.

The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners

Those are some pretty nice rides. Thanks to Hoax-Slayer.com for researching the origins of the German Truck Art Email.
