Website Hypenotice brings to attention this advertising campaign done by Volkwagen in the Netherlands where they totally dressed up the company's iconic "T1" minibus into the a "Fanwagen", a facebook-themed vehicle -- from colours, to features. Poking included.

From the article:

Some features of the car offer uniquely facebook-related functionality. on its dashboard, the 'fanwagen' features the 'feed-o-matic', a built-in device that prints the last ten posts of a user's news feed at the push of a button. a small panel beneath the rear license plate showcases the driver's relationship status, rotatable via a small scroll wheel to the panel's right. in addition, the car will arrive to the winning participant containing a map already marked with the locations of all of his facebook friends.

Check out the vehicle's "privacy settings". They're hilarious.
