EuroRSCG 4D has partnered with Arnold Worldwide and SapientNitro to develop an integrated campaign to promote the introduction of the new Volvo S60 at the Geneva Auto Show.
The theme, ‘The Naughty Volvo’aims to build on the brand's responsible reputation by showing it has a fun and adventurous side, too.
The campaign objective is to spark conversation about the new model among driving enthusiasts by demonstrating the S60's driving dynamics, design and innovative technology.
It launches with a digital experience in March and will expand throughout the year to include TV, social marketing, press ads, experiential activity, outdoor. The campaign also includes on and offline CRM elements, produced by EHS 4D.
The online campaign centres around three Naughty Volvo Films shot at Volvo's proving grounds. The digital experience allows consumers to engage with the films, which feature increasingly mischievous product demonstrations.
Users will be able to turn up the films from levels one to three to increase the excitement of the product demonstration. The films can be accessed at naughty.volvocars.com
The first film, or Level One, showcases The Naughty Volvo going through a product demonstration called Slalom. It shows the S60 undertaking a standard slalom test and finishes with the tagline, "Want it Naughty?"
Level Two shows a naughtier looking S60 turning from standard orange to a hot red color completing the same course, but this time driving oh-so-close to delicate objects such as porcelain plates and a goldfish bowl which are precariously placed on top of the slalom cones.
The end of Level Two asks the question, "Want it even naughtier?" Level Three shows the new S60 negotiating the same course, only this time driving backwards with expert precision. It ends with, "Not naughty enough? You tell us."
At this point, users will be invited into a crowd-sourcing program where fans of the car are invited to submit ideas on how to create a Level Four experience, the most adventurous and mischievous of the product demos.
The winning ideas will be produced by Arnold and EuroRSCG 4D and released prior to the S60's on-sale date later this year.
Don Lane, Volvo global brand director for Arnold, said, "The Naughty Volvo campaign is designed to be as surprising and innovative as the product itself. This is by far the most integrated, modern campaign we have developed together with our partner agencies. We look forward to releasing additional exciting developments throughout the year."
