on May 2, 2012 by Tim Comments

In case you didn’t know, Cane Toads are a pest in Australia. They poison pets and injure humans and you won’t find many sensible Australians who have any sympathy for these creatures. Ford took that as a starting point for a new commercial for the their Falcon model. Read more…

Happy Valentine’s day… from Ford

on February 13, 2006 by Martina Comments

In Belgium, Ford allows users to send special Valentine’s SMS with branded love messages for uninspired lovers. Actually Ford gives people the opportunity to send free personalized messages, but if someone is (sadly) out of ideas, some suggestions are provided. For example: “Vandaag ligt de FOCUS op mijn liefde voor jou en als bewijs stuur ik je duizenden kusjes“… which means (if my Dutch is still good enough) something like “Today the fire (FOCUS) of my love is for you and as a sign I send you thousand kisses”…

The KA boys

on February 12, 2006 by Martina Comments

In France, Ford gets inspiration from the movie “The Full Monty” to launch a series of funny videos and a micro-site to promote its KA model. The KA Boys campaign, created by Wunderman, gives a shake to the traditional Ford’s communication approach, generating word-of-mouth especially among women who will surely laugh at these improbable strip teasers… [via Marketing Alternatif]

Ford billboards: look who’s talking now

on September 20, 2005 by Martina Comments

Thanks to an hint from Philip I’ve found out that today Ogilvy (Alain Caviggia is the creative behind it) introduced in Belgium an interactive outdoor campaign for Ford. The “Ford Miracles” ads consists of interactive posters that look at people and react to their actions. The voice and facial expressions of the guy in the poster are controlled by an actor hidden in a booth nearby. The interactive billboards can be found at the main train stations in Belgium and if you find them I believe it will be very funny to see how people behave in front of them. It’s a sort of Candid Camera There is also a website supporting the campaign, check for example www.fordfaitdesmiracles.be for the French version. On Philip’s blog you also find a video showing senior German tourist interacting with the billboard.
