An Impressive iPhone Newspaper Ad [Video]

A few agencies get mobile advertising just right, and a very few companies seem to understand that you need a good iPhone app to let people engage with your product. Most companies think that pushing a web application wrapped in an iPhone app out in the App Store is enough; Belgium-based insurance company AXA is different.

Not only AXA was the first insurance company to deploy a good iPhone application, now they also realized an impressive interactive ad that requires users to point the iPhone over a blank spot on a newspaper and watch the magic happen. Seriously, just take a look at the video below. It may be a gimmick and it may not be so informative, but it catches your attention; it kind of forces you to stare at that video for a minute.
