VOLVO’S 93RD ANNIVERSARY PROMOTIONAL VIDEO
April 14, 2020, is the 93rd birthday of Volvo Cars. Volvo has launched a promotional video dedicated to all Volvo Cars employees and owners, explaining what is the “best” in Volvo style.
With the theme of “The Best For The Best”, Volvo selects 6 employees and their families from 6 different departments to shoot this video:
- the R&D department,
- design department,
- supplier management department,
- after-sales department,
- sales department.
They are both Volvo car manufacturers and consumers. They are an employee, a father, and a daughter. They are also a group of passionate and curious people in life.
Like all other car owners, they will be confused and lost, but never give up. They are the best, creating the best products for the best of you.
MIDEA’S CREATIVE ADVERTISING
Recently, Midea launches an ad “Singing Window” for the new product Midea U launched in the North American market.
At the beginning of the ad, the delivery people delivered products to the door, and the windows of the apartment opened and closed, like a mouth singing.
Then, the camera cuts to an imaginative scene. The little boy who dreamed of flying by the window, the housewife who made the Harley motorcycle smaller, the father who reached out to take off the clouds, the meditation brother floating in the air, the black grandpa who retired, and the big ear girl who read quietly.
They all have one thing in common, that is, they all have a window that can sing.
Midea uses singing windows to express the characteristics that the new air conditioner can support free opening and closing. Users can get fresh air by opening the windows, and can breathe freely in Manhattan’s forced apartments; closing the windows can isolate the noise and thus insulating from Brooklyn’s noise.

HONDA ADVANCED ADVERTISEMENT AT HOME
Affected by the epidemic, video shooting was limited, and most of the advertisements returned to the traditional form of the screen and copywriting.
However, UAE Ogilvy recently made a short ad video for Honda Motor, from script to shooting, from copywriting to post-production, all process of making the video is done at home.
The video is only half a minute long, and only one exquisite car model appears. The corrected shooting and production did not make the film look very low-end, and even quite a bit advanced. The Civic car in the commercial is a toy model borrowed from Honda’s local executive’s children. By using furniture, electrical appliances, and books in the home as props, the ad creates the illusion of having real tunnels or buildings.
With the bright and melodious “Sound of Spring Ballad” by John Strauss as the background music, the slightly dull dark tone picture adds a lot of humor, and the copy demonstrates that the entire short film is all done at home.
Without cool lenses and advanced productions, Honda can impress the audience with exquisite creativity.
JEEP’S THE GREAT INDOORS
During the epidemic, Jeep Australia released a “The Great Indoors” themed poster. Through a series of “Jeep iconic round headlights and air intake grilles” composed of daily necessities, Jeep tells people that it is a good time to explore indoors, encouraging people to keep isolated at home.
In addition, to make life at home better, Jeep India posted # StayingIndoors # series of posters on social media for 7 days, 1 theme per day, to share different things you can do at home. The poster shows that even Jeep, who was born to love the outdoors, is now staying at home, people should also be like this.
Not long ago, Jeep Peru also released a creative post, accurately changing the angle of view to show the scenery that Jeep saw in the garage during the epidemic.
Once crossing the mountains, rivers and the sea to explore a more wonderful world, now Jeep realizes that home is the most beautiful scenery.
BURGER KING’S ANTI-EPIDEMIC IDEAS
The epidemic is spreading all over the world. The grim situation also prevents consumers from going out and can only shop at home.

Burger King emphasizes that delivery is now free, and ordering a burger can easily become a “sofa patriot”, encouraging everyone not to go out for safety. Meanwhile, Burger King also said that it will donate burgers to medical staff for free, and support the American Nurses Foundation to ensure the efficient operation of the medical system.
