Insights, Strategy & the Idea
In 2011, Renault asked us to promote its Renault Bose Edition: a limited range of cars equipped with tailor-made sound system.
The client expected a classical 20 second TV commercial but we came up with an alternative idea and media plan, more appealing to the target.
A REAL FAKE CLIP.
Instead of making a commercial for a car, we made a clip promoting a singer with a car ad hidden inside.
Results and Effectiveness
We broadcast on music TV channels (MTV, Mezzo, MCM...) as if it was a real clip.
The Promo / PR Ad titled MELODY GARDOT was done by Publicis Conseil advertising agency for brand: Renault in France. It was released in the Mar 2011.
