Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Hot Wheels is a brand that creates great experiences and amazing creative advertising, this way, fathers and children can identify our brand and make it his own.
Our target enjoy speed and challenge, they have the perception that Hot Wheels are small cars that help to express this.

The idea works because nobody can ignore this and everybody wants to tell his friends or relatives how amazing it can be.
The consumer feels part of Hot Wheels, being part of a toy that is generating a brand experience.

Creative Execution
Two giant children shape structures were placed in Mexico-Cuernavaca speedway. They make you live the experience of being inside a Hot Wheels.

Results and Effectiveness
We continued with the leadership brand positioning, communicating their goal about not selling a product but the fame that Hot Wheels obtained through an ad.
This caused that this piece of communication were mentioned in blogs, social networks, websites and local media. This was not only an outdoor piece, there were also all sorts of unpaid mentions covering different targets we wanted to achieve.
