keep your eyes on the road volkswagen

We all know (hopefully) that using your mobile phone while driving is an absolute no no. Whether you are making phone call, sending a text or checking your social media, it is extremely dangerous to use your phone while you are operating a vehicle.

Sure, you might think that you are only taking your eyes off the road for one second, but one second is all you need to cause a terrible accident.

This is what Volkswagen tries to illustrate in their latest ad, promoting the responsible use of mobile phones while driving. And by responsible we mean NOT using your mobile phone at all.

The ad, which was first shown to people in Korea, integrated clever technology to really have a great on effect on the people. (more…)

We all know the game of Jenga. The game where you remove wooden blocks stacked on each other one by ne and hope and pray that you are not the on to cause the tower to come crashing down.

Well, imagine this game being played on a greater scale – and by greater scale we mean super large blocks being moved by huge Caterpillar machines instead of humans.

This is exactly what the company has done with their latest advertisement. Under the tagline “Designed to get it done no matter what it is”, the huge Caterpillar machines, which include an Escavator and Telehandler, play a friendly game of Jenga.

The ad is shot beautifully and it is actually really interesting to watch. You’ll be on the edge of your seat once one of the machines pulls out two blocks from the bottom row.

Audi is currently driving a very secretive (yet thoroughly exciting) marketing campaign in anticipation of the release of their latest model.

The new model, that no one really knows about, will be unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show in March. However, prior to the launch, Audi has been releasing sneaky teaser video’s that only show a glimpse of the new car.

While many expected it to be the 2015 version of the Audi TT, the second teaser video in this series proves that it’s not. The latest video shows a smaller, hatchback car. (more…)

If there is one way to ensure you get the most out of your marketing budget, it is to have a competition involved somewhere, somehow. And that is exactly what Porsche did for their new Panamera.

In an effort to produce a sleek, beautiful and highly creative advertisement, Porsche invited ten filmmakers to produce a short film for the Panamera that would serve as its commercial.

The tagline read: “Thrilling Contradictions”, which meant these ten filmmakers had to come up with a film that revolves around breathtaking contradictions. (more…)

BMW, Audi Ad Campaign WAR Heats Up in Hong Kong

Published by on Apr 27th, 2010, 3 Comments

BMW and Audi, the two German premium brands have their daggers drawn at each other and no one is in the mood to spare the other. The already popular ad campaign war between the two has now headed to Hong Kong where BMW is a tiny bit ahead after buying a huge ad space — where they display the new BMW 5-series — directly above the Audi showroom in Hong Kong.

BMW billboard over Audi

And from what we can tell, this board effectively displaces the Audi dealership from viewing. Those following this battle closely will remember the two premium German brands competing with billboard adverts in the US, too, in California. Considering the ongoing battle, this sure is an impressive move by BMW while Audi needs to figure out the source that gave BMW the ad space. We wonder what will be their next step.

SEAT Ibiza Advert … Just About Right

Published by on Oct 10th, 2008, No Comments

Usually car advertising campaigns are usually the same. A beautiful, shining car that you get to see running on a perfect road. Cases when we find something funny, are rare, but exist. Here is for example the latest SEAT Ibiza SC advertising campaign intended for cinemas. The actors are the SEAT racing team drivers, who are running to get to drive the Ibiza, but fail to do so because a mystery woman pulls away victorious. Oh and she pulls the finger at them … That’s FUN!
