on September 4, 2013 by Tim Comments

If you have ever waited for the traffic lights to turn green while sitting in a Golf GTI, you know why people drive them. The GTI is about horse power and about speed.

Although putting a lot of money in super produced commercials is not new, we can wonder if the recent multiplication of these breathtaking films are pure coincidence or if they are setting new standards.

Driving the SuperBowl

on January 31, 2013 by Martina Comments

We are a few days away from the Super Bowl and, as usual, the energy and the curiosity are building around the commercials that will be broadcasted during the final. Let us do our due diligence then, covering some videos that are trying to score the winning touchdown, for example, in the automotive industry. So here you’ll see the ads by Mercedes, Toyota, Audi, Volskwagen and Kia listed in order of (personal) preference. I would love to know how would you list the! Read more…

VW Day of the Dead

on December 11, 2012 by Mark Comments

Day of the Dead is probably one of the most reknowned mexican traditions. Also, Mexico is the country where the last (old) Volkswagen Beetle was made, so this year Grupo W came up with a simple nice idea to celebrate a car that is now gone: an altar honoring it.

With a nice craft and soundtrack, this site is a good way to prove that Flash can still be useful

VW – The Original Click

on May 24, 2012 by Mark Comments

Pretty nice idea from Volkswagen using the Youtube channel. You start watching a video that shows how so many great songs have been copied, destroyed and reposted. These clips sometimes get more clicks than the originals. So in this VW video the ads that get displayed give the message that VW uses only 100% Genuine Parts. If you click on the banner it redirects you to the original song from the original artist. Nice use of Youtube.

Volkswagen loves gambling. And consumers do too

on August 23, 2011 by Martina Comments

Selling a car on the base of its fuel consumption is not an easy task. And I can think about the faces of the creatives when they were told the USP for a Volkswagen Golf was the fact that it can drive for over 1500 km on a single tank of fuel. So kudos to Norwegian agency Try for creating such a nice integrated campaign that kicked off on TV and “exploded” online creating buzz and consumer engagement.

VW Canada – Drive until ________

on June 22, 2011 by Mark Comments

Volkswagen in Canada have come with an idea to use one of their facebook fans to be the creative on the next TVC they produce. They’ll get to pick the script, the car, the cast, add music and edit the spot. They will also be featured in the online credits. From reading some of the fan posts they also have some nice ideas…
