Audi and BMW engage in a billboard war

BMW started a war with Audi by mounting an outdoor banner right in front of Audi’s showroom. The banner read, “It’s never too late to change your mind.”
So Audi, responded with another banner right behind BMW’s one saying: “LOOOOL, you don’t change from a winning brand.”
The “LOOOOL” showed in Audi’s banner was created using its rings in the logo.

The MINI REVOLUTION: Between innovation and heritage
The objective of the OOH campaign was to bring to life the exclusive features of the new MINI, including horseshoe shaped LED headlights, through a series of special posters replicating the front of the car.

Posterscope Rolls Out Innovative Data-Driven Outdoor Ad Campaign for MINI Hatch

As part of its ‘New and Original’ out-of-home (OOH) advertising campaign, MINI Hatch is leveraging revolutionary outdoor audience insights to track and strategically reach its target customers at the most optimal times of their daily commute.
Posterscope used Route to identify environments where MINI Hatch’s audiences are most likely to visit and, in partnership with Vizeum, iris and LIVEPOSTER, has incorporated this data into planning an industry-first, immersive three-tiered outdoor campaign covering a Wonderwall, a full cross-track domination, at London’s Liverpool Street Station, traditional posters and digital OOH elements.
The campaign kicks off across a Wonderwall at Liverpool Street Station, which displays interchanging outdoor creative to highlight the ‘New and Original’ components of the car, and cross-track projections (XTPs) using LIVEPOSTER technology. The innovative capabilities of the LIVEPOSTER platform will bring to life the new ConnectedDrive in-car internet system feature of the MINI Hatch, by announcing live tweets and Facebook updates throughout the day. This campaign celebrates the first time LIVEPOSTER has been used within a Wonderwall.
As part of the wider strategy, the activity will also run across stand alone iconic UK landmark OOH sites including London’s Old Street and Wandsworth Roundabouts, Trafford Arch in Manchester and the M5 Tower in Birmingham and the Glasgow Tower. Digital media communications will then be used to demonstrate the distinct product features of the new MINI Hatch across high frequency, small format digital OOH sites.
Francesca Blair, Client Manager, Posterscope, said: “By devising a three-pronged approach, we are able to reach audiences where they are in the most innovative and striking ways possible. By using unrivalled industry insight, we can generate mass awareness and emotional appeal of the MINI Hatch’s ‘New and Original’ messages, which when distributed across a Wonderwall, will deliver a truly immersive experience. This highly targeted data-driven campaign allows us to deliver efficiencies and true business value for the client.”
Richard Morris, Managing Director, Vizeum said: “We wanted MINI to be celebrated not just for its iconic status in British society, but for how it encapsulates technological advancements in driving. Liverpool Street Station’s Wonderwall represents the ideal, immersive space to bring the benefits and distinctiveness of MINI to life.”
