Technology has taken over Taiwan’s advertising stints to promote one of the most prestigious international sports events celebrated by the world. Fortunately chosen to host this year’s Universiade, Taiwan came up with this enticing subway car setup that’s sure to poke interest among passengers to see the event.

Taipei City, Taiwan’s capital, is currently hands full in preparing to hold the 2017 Summer Universiade. It came up with a unique promotional campaign that’s effectively getting everybody in the mood to welcome the big event.

How, you ask? Well, the bright minds from the EasyCard Corporation, which is responsible in synchronizing Taiwan’s public transportation, and the Tourism Bureau of Taiwan used their Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) to spread the hype.
