Volkswagen Polo Campaign Promotes New Safety Features

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014


In Volkswagen’s latest social campaign for the Polo, a range of advanced technology options add to the car’s attributes and social user engagement. These features absolutely promote safer driving but also created an opportunity to design a very creative social campaign that uses photographs to illustrate the difference the new safety features will make. To promote the Volkswagen Polo’s revolutionary new safety features, Volkswagen’s marketin team created a series of images, known as the “Museum of Extinct Backseat Drivers” – which features portraits of the annoying types of passengers. Basically the new safety features mean that the backseat driver’s days are numbered and soon they will be non-existent. Take the “Handle Grabber,” for example, due to the Polo’s Adaptive Cruise Control’s ability to maintain a safe distance and speed, there is no longer a need for passengers to grab the handles in fear.
