Scirocco Cup Campaign won Bronze Media Lions “Best Use of Print”

The Cannes Lions Festival is the world’s only truly global meeting place for creative professionals in the communications industry. Augmented Reality Scirocco Cup Campaign won Bronze Media Lions for “Best Use of Print”. Congrats to  Ogilvy Beijing. More info here.

Results and Effectiveness:

From these insertions came over 900,000 page views, over 200,000 unique visitors and over 50,000 virtually racing on the Scirocco Cup tracks. In addition, huge buzz over the racing game turned into over 52,000 registering for the Scirocco Camp which was a few more than VW could accommodate, but enthusiasm for the race and the Scirocco itself had been attained. Over 7% of the virtual racers signed up for test drives making 2010 VW’s best year ever for Scirocco sales. For VW, it supported (and leveraged) the fun, active, tech-advanced attributes which are so important to the brand.

Creative Execution:

A flap/insert on the outside of magazines led the reader to a print ad about the event. The flap turned out to be a racing wheel to be used in the Scirocco Cup 2010 Augmented Reality race that was as near as their computer. The instant racers chose from the 7 tracks that the professional Scirocco Cup races would take place on around the country. Since Scirocco is really a product that attracts young trendsetter and car enthusiasts with a love for modern technology, this creative execution engaged them on multiple levels: speed, competition, new gadgetry, and as an adrenaline-pumping experience, either alone or with friends.

Insights, Strategy and the Idea:

As the Scirocco Cup Professional Racing Circuit was coming to China, VW wanted to build excitement for the events, and also use the events to leverage their 2010 Scirocco. Since few people from their target were able to attend the races (or even see them on TV as they were not televised) VW wanted to bring the excitement of the racing experience to people.

Total Immersion’s partner C4M developped the smartphone version. The game is truly immersive as the player has the sensation to have candies flying all around him.  The Smartphone version is available for the French territory only.

Volvo Pioneered the First Ever YouTube Masthead with an Augmented Reality Experience

This car showcases our new design DNA, our exciting driving dynamics, and our legendary Volvo safety.”

Volvo’s digital and media agencies of record, Euro RSCG New York and Media Contacts are responsible for the development and placement of this campaign, respectively.

“This effort is further proof of Volvo’s commitment to innovation in the digital channels,” said Jeff Brooks, CEO of Euro RSCG New York. “We’re very fortunate to have a client like Volvo who is constantly experimenting with new ways to enhance brand and consumer interactions.”
