Toyota Sandance

// The Brief

Toyota as a brand in the Middle East has always been known as one of the leading giants in automotive with its wide range of cars for every segment. Yet there was a perceived need for an ‘emotional connection’ with our audience: the Generation X and more specifically, the emerging Generation Y crowd. Our Challenge was to find an engaging channel to bond with them, and in the process, overcome any old perceptions of the brand by celebrating vibrancy and youthfulness.

// Solution

We created engaging On-ground brand experiences that were digitally-linked and would incite social conversations under the theme “Make Some Noise with Toyota”. By integrating these with the brand through real-time social updates and on the spot sharing through smart usage of RFID technology, we were able to create a whole new dimension of interactivity where participants could share the fun in their social circle and be heard! The Make Some Noise Experience included: ‘The FJ Cruiser Noisometer’, Toyota Snaps,Toyota Greets, Toyota Beats,Toyota Tattoos , Toyota 86 “AR” Racing, Toyota Arcade and Toyota Treats
