Entry Summary:
Despite the widely publicized dangers, teens just don’t think looking at their phone for a few seconds is distracted driving. So we launched a Spotify radio campaign that made them realize that seconds is all it takes. We geo-targeted the radio ads to the Ontario roads they drove the most and customized them to their Spotify playlists by using the power of Spotify’s behavioral data.
Teens just don’t think looking at their phone for a few seconds is distracted driving. This Spotify radio campaign for the Ontario Ministry of Transportation made them realize ‘it happens fast.’
