English Synopsis
The Passat 4MOTION is a German car that’s adjusted for Swedish winter – it has a Swedish Haldex 4 wheel drive system fitted. To tell people about this we didn’t do a brand campaign or a tactical sales campaign, we did both.
We invented the winter adjusted offer for a winter adjusted car. A tactical offer that put the product benefit at the centre. Simply put, we placed the car plus offer on a standard billboard, then placed it in the middle of a frozen Swedish lake. Once the ice breaks and the billboard sinks, the offer is over.
