Carmaker Acura promoted the surprise cameo appearance of the Acura NSX prototype in comedian Jerry Seinfeld’s new web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee by turning their Twitter timeline into a flipbook animation.

Acura tweeted 150 custom illustrations one after the other to fans of the show. When viewed sequentially, the illustrations create a quick animation featuring the NSX model.


The flipbook-animation tweets presented a creative way for brands and businesses to go beyond status updates when using the social networking service for promotions or marketing gimmicks.

You can scroll through some of the custom illustrations in the gallery below. Check out the entire series of tweets on Acura’s Twitter page or on Storify.
