Audi takes unique 3D spin
Audi India promotes its A8 L model via a 2D and 3D microsite
The Offer: Audi India's integrated "Advanced State of Mind" campaign directs potential customers to a 3D microsite promoting its Audi A8 L car, recently introduced to the Indian market.
The Data: Direct mailers were sent to 15,000 individuals including Audi's existing and prospective customer database and key individuals in corporate, media and advertising industries. It generated early regional buzz around the Audi model with previews of the 3D video in Dubai and Mumbai.
The Channel: In addition to direct mailers and word of mouth, the campaign drives visitors to the microsite, showrooms and first-class airline cabins, as well as social media including Facebook and Twitter. Audi's agency of record, Creativeland Asia, developed the campaign.
The Creative: Available in both 2D and 3D formats, the microsite provides users with a 360-degree view of the Audi A8 L model. Users can zoom in on specific features of the car, including a panoramic glass roof and LED technology. The experience features a man in a suit who, upon entering an empty room, is struck by a sudden unseen force but lands gracefully in the backseat of a silver Audi A8 L, with components of the car piecing together during his descent.
