Results and Effectiveness
BMW sold two times more MINI in Brazil than expected for the first year.

Creative Execution
In a series of 24 weekly webisodes, MINI TV interviewed top brazilian personalities and celebrities while they drove through the city inside a MINI Cooper presenting their favourite places. The viewer explores at the same time the little known corners of the city and the little known tidbits about the personality's life. With cameras on board and outside the car that capture it from every angle, the interview ranges from interesting discussions to the experience of driving itself. All of this availiable on the web through MINI's webpage and other online channels.

Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Throughout the world, MINI is a brand that represents the pure urban lifestyle. São Paulo is the greatest Brazilian city. A place that resonates this cool and cosmopolitan lifestyle. For the launching of the MINI Cooper in Brazil, how would the brand communicate and associate with these themes? By tapping into São Paulo's urban spirit and by promoting a breakthrough test-drive experience. Bringing together the road and the São Paulo lifestyle, we developed a web based TV Show that blended talking and driving. The web’s first DRIVE SHOW.
