Segway PTs have featured in many television commercials around the world. Here in New Zealand a number of high rotation adverts have been used a PT as a centrepoint. For example, our e167 model was featured in a Telecom Xtra advert in 2005, and throughout 2008-9 the popular Cluster Crisps “dog riding a Segway PT” advert was widely played.
Look out for a major new Yellow Pages campaign that includes a PT to begin its run shortly, and a Rabobank advert has been running for a while now.
UPDATE (NOVEMBER): Yellow’s “Be Everywhere Kiwis Look” promotion is underway – look out for billboards and print advertising everywhere around New Zealand, and watch the television commercial. One of our promo staff is riding the Segway PT featured in all forms of media – dressed in a giant mobile phone suit.
In 2008 our Segway PTs featured in a Hip Hop music video: check out Ethical’s single “On My Throne” from the album Ages Turn. This video was filmed over one day in Autumn 2008 on Auckland’s North Shore, and was directed by Joe Lonie (ex-Supergrove).
