Full script of the ad IN ENGLISH, REGARDLESS OF THE ORIGINAL LANGUAGE OF THE AD
SFX: Horserace MVO: As they approach the finish line, Happy Go Lucky takes first followed by Royal Lady then Jersey Shore in third. Coming around the bend is Shadow Boxer neck-and-neck with Pixy Mist. Pixy Mist takes 4th then Shadow Boxer. And way down the stretch it’s Curly Girl in last place! An incredible last place finish for Curly Girl. Jockey Turner pumps his fist in defeat! Amazing! ANN: If slow was celebrated, we wouldn’t make the 265 horse power Subaru WRX. Visit Subaru.ca

Brief Explanation
BRIEF: Tout the benefits of the very quick & nimble Subaru WRX on Race Line Radio - a programme devoted to auto racing and speed. SOLUTION: Knowing our audience has heard a million race calls, we’d thought it’d be interesting to turn a race on its head. Rather than a commentator announcing the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers with excitement, we had him get excited about the last place finisher instead. The pay-off: 'If slow was celebrated, we wouldn’t make the Subaru WRX.'
