Walmart – Greenlight A Vet

Veterans Day is just around the corner, and we could not be more excited for our latest work with Walmart, Greenlight-A-Vet. America’s veterans are some of our nation’s bravest, hardest-working men and women. However, it’s hard to show them the appreciation they deserve when, back home and out of uniform, they’re more camouflaged than ever. Greenlight-A-Vet is a campaign to establish visible national support for our veterans by changing one light to green.

How to Get Involved:

Change one light to green in a visible location-on your porch, in your home, or at your office-and keep it glowing every day as a symbol of appreciation and support for our veterans. Then, share your support by taking a picture of your green light and posting it using the hashtag #greenlightavet.
Also, join us in NYC on November 11th in participating in the NYC Veterans Day parade!

Toyota – Auris

With a nation-wide campaign in Germany, Toyota is launching its flagship in the C segment – the new Auris.

Scenes of a happy bromance: two friends, a road trip through magnificent landscapes and the joy of sharing an unforgettable experience. That’s the focal point of the new Toyota spot with the familiar buddies Jan-Josef Liefers and Axel Prahl. They are enjoying a relaxing drive in the mountains and are having fun without the need to exchange many words. Their playful ease is contagious. As the viewer, you find yourself imagining what it would be like to do the same thing with your own friends. But suddenly, the trip comes to an abrupt and dangerous end directly behind a serpentine curve. They are saved by another ‘friend’ on this road trip – the new Toyota Auris.

In the continuation of the campaign ‘A car like a friend’, the famous German actors Liefers and Prahl once again act as ambassadors for Toyota: this time, it’s for the freshly launched Toyota Auris. The two actors successfully highlight the Toyota brand values of ‘innovation’ and ‘reliability’. Saatchi & Saatchi Germany is responsible for the campaign.

“Liefers and Prahl are extremely authentic as testimonials for ‘friendship’. And that’s how we want the audience to see the new Toyota Auris: as a friend who is always there for you,” says Alexander Reiss, ECD at Saatchi & Saatchi. “While we communicated more general brand topics with the last road trip in May, we are now addressing the audience on a product level with safety features like Toyota Safety Sense or the reversing camera to demonstrate why the new Auris is a car like a friend,” continues Reiss.

Viewers experienced this for the first time on the 21st of September: in 30-second TV spots on channels with a high reach like RTL, SAT1, PRO7 and ARD as well as online as a pre-roll and on the Toyota websites. The film will continue in additional 60-second spots at cinemas and through social media.

Furthermore, large-format print ads and an 8-page insert in trade and consumer magazines like Auto Bild, Auto Motor Sport and Auto Test increase awareness of the new model. The campaign is accompanied by an extensive banner campaign, microsites, social media measures and a strategic communication concept for dealerships.

The Saatchi & Saatchi network has been creating global communication strategies for Toyota for 30 years. The campaigns developed and implemented in Germany include several ads with the actors Jan-Josef Liefers and Axel Prahl as well as the Aygo X-cite campaign with DJ Robin Schulz.

The 60-second ad is available under the following link: 

Resort World Manila – Cinema Roulette

She was expecting a casual movie night at Resorts World Manila’s Newport Cinemas. Instead, this woman ended up winning P1,000,000.00.

Cinema Roulette was a stunt created by Ace Saatchi & Saatchi, where movie-goers were surprised with a chance to win the huge cash prize. The entire cinema was dressed as a large roulette table. Before the movie began, the screen revealed the roulette wheel, and everyone’s seat number was included as a bet. Excitement filled the room when the ball began to spin and the winning moment was priceless.

This is the second leg of Resort’s World “World of Luck” series. Previously, a woman dining in a restaurant opened a fortune cookie which also granted her a million-peso reward. What could Resorts World and Ace Saatchi & Saatchi be planning next?
