Poetry In Motion Contest
Kit Harrington recited the William Blake poem “The Tyger” to promote the Infinity’s Q60 automobile. It is your turn to promote a new vehicle - one from your own imagination. Who is your actor and what vehicle are you promoting? I want you to use humor. Come up with a fun vehicle. For example: a tricycle.
You can look up the commercial if you need inspiration.
