Automotive - Vehicles
Cars, trucks, motorcycles, both brand and model advertising.
To introduce the Z3 roadster to America, Fallon McElligott and BMW teamed up with MGM/United Artists and the release of the James Bond Film GoldenEye to create one of the most talked about launches in automotive history. The campaign went beyond traditional product placement and leveraged the Bond association with a fully intergrated marketing communications plan announcing that "James Bond is driving a BMW." Despite its limited budget (afraction of those supporting major automotive launches), the campaign created unprecedented awareness and talk value, and generated pre-orders for the car that nearly doubled BMW's goal. As a result, the BMW Z3 roadster is setting the pace for a new generation of roadsters in America.

To generate showroom traffic and grow the franchise, the Mercedes-Benz Dealer Group needed to change price perceptions of the C-Class 220. This challenge was met with a direct affordability campaign delivered in a style that was commensurate with the Mercedes-Benz Image. The "Couples" campaign effectively accomplished all of these goals.
