Credits & Description

This commercial shows everyday situations where power sources ‘sense’ when they need to turn on or shut down. It promote Honda’s IMA(Integrated Motor Assist) engine, which uses a combined electric motor and a petrol engine to save energy, maximise efficiency and benefit the environment . ‘Sympathetic power’ sums it up.
Context

‘Less is more’. Is that always true? Rather than simplifying their brand, Honda wondered what would happen if they embraced its diversity.
Philosophy/Solution

They did, by crafting a consistent voice to communicate the brand’s many flavours and shades. What about ‘more for less’? Less spend, more effective communications, more measurements, more motivated stakeholders, more brand preference, more profit and more sales.
Results

Twenty-eight% more sales, in fact, and £388m more revenue. Not everybody believes that OK is OK. Honda certainly don’t.
