The Campaign

At a certain point in time everyone looks back at his or her life. In this film a pleasant, elderly gentleman called Heinz lets his thoughts wander around while sitting in his living room. Travelling through the decades of Heinz’ life his old but reliable Toyota was always at his side. Suddenly he realizes: a bit more variety would have been nice!

Creative Execution

The story named ‘Everlasting Love’ is told in a 90’’ film with the intention of promoting Toyota’s financing offer called ‘NEU bleibt NEU’. Thanks to this innovative offer the customer can return his Toyota every three years and gets a new one. This way the customer stays up-to-date and benefits from the latest technology and design of the brand. The campaign focuses on younger, digitally savvy new customers. This target group appreciates owning the latest technology on the market and a lack of consumer patience. They often associate longevity with boredom. The film also addresses existing customers who appreciate the reliability that Toyota has become known for. The film can be watched on the campaign landing page www.nichtwieheinz.de. It’s also being spread online through social media.

This ad lulls you into an emotional state with several deliberate details and artful touches. It opens with the sounds of a spare piano track, paired with the heavy sighing of an elderly man who sits quietly at his table, reading a letter. Soon, we realize he's in a deep state of reminiscing over a lost, long-time love, slowly poring over photos as he recalls how he and his significant other were always together, inseparable. And then when we find out his significant other isn't who we're led to expect, yet another big twist comes.

A Toyota is made to last forever. But for those of us who don’t want to wait forever there is ‘NEU bleibt NEU’. It’s a good springboard to load up the actual financing product with emotions. With the film ‘Everlasting Love’ we show with a wink that Toyota customers can have both: a new car and a reliable partner for life.
