Most of the brands use events as a part of their communication.
Because of this, we created a unique car event never seen before: the world´s first backwards race.
To achieve this, we had to comply with all the security measures of the Colombian racetrack, such as how to assure the life of pilots and the audience, and count with preventive measures like the fire department and ambulances.
Kia needed to launch the new rearview camera. But we have a problem, this is a not common feature in Latinamerica, and the people don’t know enough about how it works, and which is its benefit.
So we wanted everyone to understand what it was about and we did it at the obvious car event: a race, but not that obvious.
We created the world´s first backwards race guided only by rearview cameras a unique and non-precedent event for our database costumers and potential buyers.
We invited our database clients and potencial purchaser a unique and non-precedent event: the world´s first backwards race guided only by rearview cameras. An so impactful activation that they couldn´t resist the curiosity.
Professional pilots and specialized reporters talked about the brand, the camera and the event in social networks in an exciting and positive way.
After the race, 1042 rearview cameras were ordered.
The Ambient Advert titled Ogilvy Colombia Rearview Camera Race was done by Ogilvy & Mather Colombia advertising agency for product: Kia (brand: Kia) in Colombia. It was released in the May 2012.
