Volvo Trucks have released their new film The Casino which sees parking valet Ambrogio Adani get an unexpected surprise on his first day at work.
What he thinks is a gala event is actually a secretly filmed set-up – and Adani has the lead role.
For Ambrogio Adani his first day working as a parking valet at the Casino San Remo, Italy, took an unexpected turn to say the least. In Volvo Trucks’ new video, The Casino, we see him park one luxury sports car after another, when suddenly a new Volvo FH – famous for its starring role in the film The Ballerina Stunt – drives up to the red carpet.
“When I realized that I was expected to park a truck, my heart just stopped. I thought: How can I park it there?” says Ambrogio Adani.
Talking about the film director Henry Alex Rubin says, “We wanted to see the parking valet’s reaction when he’s asked to park a large truck. What will he do? Will he try to park it?”
The film is part of the release of Volvo Trucks’ new world-first gearbox, the I-Shift Dual Clutch. The technology is similar to that already found in sports cars, but Volvo Trucks is the first manufacturer in the world to develop this type of gearbox for series-produced heavy vehicles.
The new film follows previous successful stunts including The Epic Split, The Hamster Stunt and The Hook.
“We’re really pleased that so many people are taking note of our products. With our latest film about Volvo Trucks’ new transmission, I-Shift Dual Clutch, we are continuing to communicate our technological innovations in a way that is not only relevant to people interested in trucks but also to a wider public,” says Claes Nilsson, President of Volvo Trucks.
I-Shift Dual Clutch was launched in Europe in June 2014 and will be available from September 2014 on all markets selling the Volvo FH with Euro 6 D13 engines producing 460, 500 or 540 horsepower.
