Tough man lands softly with help from Volvo Cars




Swiss-born Oliver Keller is one of the leading stuntmen in Hollywood today.
And now he has the biggest Volvo airbag in the world to help him land safely at the end of his stunts.


Oliver Keller is ranked among the top 50 stuntmen in the world. Based in Hollywood, he has done stunt work for films such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Spiderman and TV blockbuster "24hours". He has even been on the cover of Vogue.

Last spring he contacted Volvo Cars Switzerland for cooperation and support for his stuntsschool which took place in Interlaken (CH) during summer.  Volvo came up with the idea to support the production of a giant airbag he needs for soft landings.

The result is the largest Volvo airbag ever. And this year it won the coveted stunt industry award for “Best Technical Achievement”. A safety statement of ist kind which fits perfectly Volvo's core brand value.


“Working with Oliver Keller is very valuable in our brand-building ,” says Georg Redlhammer, head of Marketing & Public Affairs at Volvo Cars Switzerland.
