You may have seen the water slide ad, as it was released in 2008. But the roller coaster one was just released. I’ve included a special two-minute version of the water slide ad. You can see some behind the scenes videos on Barclaycard’s Facebook page.
The ads were created by the Bartle Bogle Hegarty ad agency using the same technology that was used to show Spider-Man swinging through the streets in the three Spider-Man movies. They even have a free iPhone app that lets you water slide through a virtual city. A free roller coaster app will be released in May.
