Vauxhall uses real-time temperature data to drive new dynamic digital outdoor campaign for ‘A-Z of Corsa’
(DOOH) campaign deploys weather-related creative for ‘A-Z of Corsa’ ads whenever temperature falls below 5°C
· Two specific audiences targeted with new Corsa heated features using ROUTE data
· Use of Liveposter real-time weather data marks out-of-home first for the automotive sector
16 February 2015, London – A real-time DOOH campaign launches today for the new Vauxhall Corsa. The campaign – which is the first of its kind for the automotive sector – uses live weather data to trigger special ad creative dependent on the temperature, promoting the new Corsa’s heated product features.
Planned by Posterscope and Carat, the campaign has been designed to target two specific audiences using ROUTE data. When the temperature is low enough, each audience is targeted with creative about the product features that are most likely to interest them.
The bold all-new Corsa campaign ‘A-Z of Corsa’ is currently displaying ads for the new Corsa across a network of digital screens using the Liveposter platform, showing on more than 500 sites nationwide, (including key cities London, Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow) across shopping centres, cinema, roadside and the London Underground. From today, whenever the temperature drops below 5°C, the creative will switch to highlight the new Corsa’s weather-related product features, such as the heated windscreen, the heated seats and the heated steering wheel.
The ‘A to Z of Corsa’, is an affectionate nod and rebellious take on the Vauxhall Corsa, which has sold over 1.8 million vehicles in its 22 years on the road. The ‘A to Z of Corsa’ accelerates viewers through a whirlwind of alphabetic themed scenes. Illustrating everyday British life and driving scenarios from boxers, cricket and dogs, to quiffs, roundabouts, snogging and tea, the ad follows people through their own personal road trips. The soundtrack, ‘There’s a beast and we all feed it’, by Jake Bugg is used across the campaign.
Chris Hawken, Vauxhall brand marketing director, said: “This is the first time General Motors has implemented a dynamic DOOH campaign. Real-time temperature data enables us to bring some of the new Corsa’s best features to life in a way that will help consumers better identify with the creative. Posterscope and Liveposter have helped us to implement a campaign that reacts to the world around it in a way that will help us to better engage our target audience with an unforgettable out-of-home experience.”
