Is this the first Twitter-based commercial?

Did a smart car company in Argentina just create the first Twitter-based commercial?

But for the ASCII, it’s a classic setup for a car commercial—a little car takes the scenic route from to and back, eventually maneuvering into a tight parking space between two large vehicles, showing off its size.

In this case though, 456  by the company (@SmartArg) tell the story. Viewed as series of Tweets, the piece is a kind of low-fi parallax scroll, or a flipbook where each Tweet is a re-Tweetable “page” that “moves” the car forward.

While the handle Tweets in Spanish, the only relevant language here is visual. Clever use of the machine. Seen anything else like this? Direct to it if you have!
