Results and Effectiveness
All readers could thus see the world the way a SAAB 9-3 Convertible driver sees it.
What we did was to contact a national daily paper to propose something a little different: a slight modification of their 'Weather' section.
So readers would discover that the weather map maintained its regular format, but instead of the symbols for sunny, cloudy or rainy, they would see cars with the top all the way down, halfway down or closed, depending on the weather forecast that day in each region of the country.
Insights, Strategy & the Idea
What will the Saab 9-3 be like today?
With the advent of spring, SAAB needed a small-format print campaign to create awareness of the soft-top models in the 9-3 range.
The Promo / PR Ad titled WEATHER MAP was done by Mccann-erickson advertising agency for product: Saab 9-3 Cabrio (brand: Saab) in Spain. It was released in the Apr 2010.
