Team One Launches Annual ‘December to Remember’ Push for Lexus

Team One has launched the annual “December to Remember” holiday sales event for Lexus with a new integrated campaign built around three broadcast spots.

In each of the 30-second spots parents present a different explanation for how exactly Santa manages to deliver a luxury sedan. The parents in “Christmas Train” explain how an iconic holiday train made its way to their driveway, where elves helped unload it right to the driveway — complete with Lexus’ signature red bow. In “Magic Box,” the car magically self-assembles from a small box Santa places in the driveway, while in “Teleporter” it is beamed in directly from the North Pole.

The broadcast spots begin airing today on network and cable television, with “Christmas Train” also being translated for Hispanic and Asian-American markets. Additionally, the campaign is supported by print and OOH executions, as well as a digital partnership with The Weather Channel which will “provide targeted December Sales Event ads in real time based on local weather conditions.”

“The holidays are a time of year when people indulge their imaginations and share stories filled with magic and wonder,” said Brian Smith, Lexus vice president of marketing. “This year’s holiday campaign celebrates the tradition of storytelling and reminds us that children aren’t the only ones who get to have fun this time of year.” Read more

180LA Salutes Rock Balladry/R&B in Sony Promo

To create awareness and excitement for Sony’s new in-dash A/V navigation systems with TomTom technology, 180LA brings us a digital campaign that includes two music videos (one rock-themed, seen above, and another R&B-based after the jump) featuring a mash-up of music and navigation. Directed by Grammy Award Winner, Trish Sie, I kind of love these. They’re funny, they acknowledge the annoyance of not knowing where you are, and the casting is spot on. Also, I dig that one of the videos is set in LA as anyone who’s driven there knows what a fuckmare it is to get around.

Gavin Lester, creative director at 180LA says, “The videos target 22-49 year-old women and men who take their digital music everywhere but are looking for a dependable, quality way to play their music and videos in the car.”
