Team One Introduces RC Coupe for Lexus

Team One is launching a campaign today to introduce Lexus’ first-ever RC 350 sport coupe and RC F performance coupe.

The multimedia campaign is centered around a pair of broadcast spots promoting each of the new vehicles. In “Face Off,” actor Wes Bentley (Seneca Crane in The Hunger Games, that creepy voyeur kid in American Beauty) confidently walks into a dark factory. As he glances at the Lexus RC Coupe, he likes what he sees (and for some reason lightbulbs explode as he unlocks the door) and he drives off smiling. The spot ends with the tagline, “Once driven, there’s no going back.”

“No Limits” was inspired by the RC F reveal video, and touts the vehicle’s powerful performance as barrier-breaking. It combines footage of the RC F racing through turns with athletes pushing their bodies to the limits.

Both spots launch today and will air during prime time, late night, cable, network television and cable sports, including “multiplatform ownerships within the Thursday Night Football Halftime Show on CBS and NFL Network.” In addition to the general market spots, “three additional RC F commercials geared toward multicultural audiences will also air at launch.” The broadcast efforts will be supported by digital, print and OOH executions.

GumGum Uses Sex to Sell In-Image Advertising, Lowers IQ in Process

Advertisers use sex to sell products all the time, so why not use sex to sell the idea of in-image advertising? Right, guys? Guys?

At least that’s the idea behind GumGum’s painful promo for their in-image advertising platform. The whole idea, really. There’s no thought put into it whatsoever. The spot, “Where Images and Ads Hook Up,” is just an attractive girl and guy beginning to hook up. When they reveal their undergarments, ugly yellow text appears superimposed on them, saying “IMAGE” on the girl, “ADVERTISEMENT” on the guy. At this point, feel free to shout “Really!?” at your computer, plant your face in your palm, or begin throwing things. We’re all a little dumber for having just watched this. Credits after the jump.  Read more
