Full Press Release
â€œEvery driveâ€™s a thrillerâ€. Thatâ€™s the new advertising campaign from Mazda Motor Europe and JWT-DÃ¼sseldorf for the new generation Mazda MX-5. The worldâ€™s bestselling roadster is now outfitted with not only the classic soft-top roof, but the fastest folding hardtop roof currently available.
Last year, the Mazda MX-5 â€œ12 Second Thrillerâ€ pre-launch campaign combined the exciting, best-in-class handling and performance of the roadster with creative inspiration from the thriller film genre. The new launch campaign takes that concept one step further.
Eddy Greenwood, European Creative Director for Mazda Motor Europeâ€™s lead agency JWT-DÃ¼sseldorf said, â€œWith the â€˜Every driveâ€™s a thrillerâ€™ campaign, JWT has delivered a big idea thatâ€™s lots of fun for everyone involved. It works in all channels and itâ€™s inspiring our partner agencies to do great work too.â€
â€œEvery driveâ€™s a thrillerâ€ boasts two films, â€œCasinoâ€ and â€œDesert Treasureâ€, both of which take their cues from major Hollywood thrillers. They were directed by Luke Scott, son to the award-winning director Sir Ridley Scott, and produced by RSA Films. The campaignâ€™s print executions work as movie posters for the two films.
Kurt B. Geiger, Copywriter on the project stated, â€œThe Mazda MX-5 is a thrilling ride, and we wanted to capture that kind of driving excitement with this campaign.â€ Igor Karpalov, Art Director furthered, â€œSo we used a film genre â€“ and a director â€“ that bring Mazdaâ€™s Zoom-Zoom personality to life.â€
According to Damian Donnellan, Communications Manager at Mazda Motor Europe, â€œAt Mazda Europe, we work with 22 markets across the entire continent. And they all have their special cultural idiosyncrasies. So itâ€™s important that our communications appeal to everyone and excite all of our owners and customers, no matter where they live. The Mazda MX-5 and the â€œEvery driveâ€™s a thrillerâ€ campaign achieve that.â€
