NEW YORK, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyundai Motor Company launches a new
interactive billboard campaign entitled 'Hyundai Brilliant Interactive Art'.
It utilizes a two-way interactive communication between consumers and
corporate groups to target tourists and pedestrians around Times Square's
billboards in Manhattan.

‘Hyundai Brilliant Interactive Art’ Set to Captivate New Yorkers

This interactive billboard integrates the latest technology, and is the next
step in Hyundai Motor Company's strategic brand direction 'Modern Premium,'
that started with 'Hyundai Race' in 2011 and 'Hyundai Brilliant Image Show' in

'Hyundai Brilliant Interactive Art' attempts to communicate emotionally with
visitors by showing many different looks of the virtual character 'Mr.
Brilliant' who lives in the three-sided outdoor billboard.

As visitors pose for the high-tech facial recognition camera, 'Mr. Brilliant'
finishes by embellishing the visitors' photo with various themes for all Times
Square visitors to see.

Six backgrounds are available for visitors to choose from:

  oTourist who travels Times Square
  oArtist who draws New York City
  oImage of the Statue of Liberty
  oPolice officer protecting New York
  oCelebrity jogging across Manhattan Bridge
  oRace car driver with his favorite Hyundai

Also, 'Mr. Brilliant' presents memories by displaying visitor messages on the
billboard sent via a smartphone mobile page connected through 'Mr. Brilliant'

"This interactive billboard campaign is intended to build brand awareness and
reach a large audience by departing from the traditional brand marketing
strategy," said a representative from Hyundai Motor Company. "We expect this
new interactive billboard campaign will provide opportunities for visitors
from around the world to experience the Hyundai Motor brand in a fun and
memorable fashion."

New York City's Times Square, the launch site of 'Hyundai Brilliant
Interactive Art', is truly the world's landmark located in the very center of
Manhattan-heart of the world commerce and art. It is also one of the busiest
pedestrian intersections in the world boasting more than 300,000 visitors a
day and more than 100 million each year.

Hyundai first advertised at its location in Times Square starting in 2009. The
high-visibility location also is used by companies like Coca-Cola and Samsung

Hyundai Motor Company is conducting other big and unique consumer
communication displays as part of its 2012 'Live Brilliant' campaign that
helps consumers experience the Hyundai brand via campaigns such as
'Culture/Art branding' sponsorship of famous galleries like 'Tate Modern' and
'National Museum of Contemporary Art' and the 'Hyundai Motor Studio Seoul'
that opened in 2014.
