Datsun is excited to launch a sequel of their Twitter Tug of War competition, but this time to universities across the country. At the end of 2018, Datsun challenged South Africans to pull the newly launched Datsun GO all the way to their house and into their garage. Of course, not literally, but through using social media savvy skills. What better way to start the year as a student than to stand a chance of winning a brand-new Datsun GO?
So, for those students that might have missed the entry mechanic, this week, we’ll drop a Datsun GO in the middle of South Africa. Tweet #GO followed by the name of your university to “pull” the car to your campus, for example #GOUCT. The top three universities with the most tweets will qualify to go through to the next round of the competition.
Next up, it’s a tweet race to the finish line as the top three universities battle it out to pull the Datsun GO towards their campus. If yours and your university-community’s twitter skills are up to scratch, the Datsun will start to ‘move’ towards your university.
The more you and your mates tweet, the higher the chances will be of the Datsun GO making its way to your University, so we suggest you convince all other campus students, your friends in res, lecturers and even family to tweet too.
From there, we will hide five keys on the winning university’s campus where clues will be shared to help you find them. One of those keys will unlock the Datsun GO and make you a winner. Remember to keep an eye on our social media channels to follow the progress as well as to be informed of campus activations and additional prizes coming to your university.
Why should you tweet to win this cool car? Not only will the days of catching a lift with friends be over, but the Datsun GO and, GO+ are stylish, have a low cost of ownership, great safety qualities and features. Standard specifications include coloured electric side mirrors, Apple & Android Auto CarPlay, reverse parking sensors, intermittent wipers, central locking, an immobilizer, ABS, driver and passenger airbags, and retractable seatbelts.
The Datsun GO, which starts from R144,500, comes with a standard 3-year/100,000km warranty and an optional service plan.
Buying this vehicle will not cripple your tight student budget – if you work it out, you can save R75 a day and become the owner of your very own first car.
Start warming your thumbs, keep an eye on Datsun's Twitter page for more details and stand a chance to transform your student-life with a car that allows you to take control of your time on your terms and in your own style.
