Volkswagen Genuine Parts: Haunted Road TV Ad

VW The Singing Children of the R33
Following the successful Haunted Road radio campaign, we launched a Haunted Road cinema and TV ad that flighted during the December holidays. The spot promotes the benefits of fitting Volkswagen Genuine Parts, and not breaking down on these scary roads.

Volkswagen: StreetQuest

Since 1951, South Africans have loved Volkswagen. In fact, you’ll probably find one on every street, road, highway and byway in the country. We were asked to find an innovative way to celebrate the impact that Volkswagen has had on South African streets, and use it to kickstart Volkswagen South Africa’s Facebook Page. Volkswagen Street Quest was a Facebook challenge to find as many Volkswagens as possible on South African streets using Google Street View in a custom-designed gaming interface. The game was played over four weeks and the player with the most Pins each week qualified for the Grand Final – a live playoff in which finalists competed for prizes worth R50 000.

Volkswagen: Polo Vivo Commercials

This is our latest retail campaign for the Polo Vivo from Ogilvy Cape Town. We tried to show how competitive the price is in a fun and entertaining way. The Polo Vivo is all about Living Large. We coined a term in studio for its saturated look as "Life in Technicolour".
The best part about making these ads was building the life size game show sets and then having a go at some of them ourselves.
