22squared is All Over the Place with ‘Unexpect Everything’ Campaign for Toyota Corolla

Atlanta agency 22squared just launched their “Unexpect Everything” campaign promoting the Corolla for Southeast Toyota, a campaign targeted at millenials that encompasses  broadcast, influencer marketing, social, digital, mobile, search, desktop gaming, experiential and in-dealership components. This includes the really terrible Tyler Ward music video for “Forever Starts Tonight” (featured after the jump), promoting the Toyota Corolla. I guess I didn’t expect that.

Southeast Toyota’s Tumblr is a huge part of the campaign, with most content driving viewers to the site. The Tumblr hosts a wealth of content, including “Corolla art captured by photographer Jack Parker and photos and videos from 15 influencers across Southeast Toyota’s five-state footprint” and seems to be updated regularly.

The most unique element to the “Unexpect Everything” campaign is definitely CorollaCade, the unfortunately named arcade-style virtual reality Corolla simulator developed in conjunction with Fullscreen and Ogeeku. Using Oculus Rift technology, “Ogeeku product designer Jon Brence built the virtual Corolla to specifications and even coded in key car features such as Bluetooth®, back-up camera, LED headlamps and a moonroof.” The homage to classic arcade driving campaigns breaks from tradition by not being about speed and adrenaline — rather it aims to immerse the driver as an accurate representation of what driving the Corolla is like. It seems like a lot of fun. The CorollaCade team may be expanding the project further. Jon Brence from the development team tells Engadget, “We are in talks with the brand [Toyota] to have another cabinet built for showcase to the public and for several events…” You can check out a video of the making of CorollaCade above. It seems like it was a fun project to be a part of.

Credits and the awfulness of Tyler Ward after the jump. Read more

Let’s Go Furniture-Sniffing with 22squared & Aaron’s

Teens may sniff glue for kicks, but judging by the short spot from 22squared for furniture chain, Aaron’s, moms across the country will be releasing endorphins when they get a chance to sniff their newly leased furniture. Lonely housewife warning: Delivery men are not yours to sniff and/or keep.

Atlanta-based 22squared, which also counts clients including Buffalo Wild Wings and Baskin-Robbins, officially became the first AOR for Aaron’s this week (minus a formal review), and “The Smell of Ownership” is the third commercial they created for the furniture giant (the first two were created as part of a short-term project assignment). The title is a little misleading, though, since those leasing the furniture won’t actually own it, but some might call that effective advertising. We’ve seen better, we’ve seen worse, and we’ve seen Troy Aikman talking to Hulk Hogan in those Rent-A-Center ads.

Kudos to the actress for really committing to the sniffing and sacrificing chunks of brain cells. Credits after the jump.
