Sharing company with the likes of John Lewis, Sainsbury’s and Walmart, it is the only nominee from Australia & New Zealand.

Over the past four weeks, the campaign received over one million views on Facebook. The film shows a pair of elves customising a tricycle with graphite paintwork, high-rise handlebars and a custom Harley Easy Rider seat, with the intent of gifting it to a kid badass enough to ride it.

After two weeks and with over 1,200 entries, Harley-Davidson found their winner: four-year old Charlotte Russell. A little girl, with a big heart.

“Originally, we were trying to find a kid on Santa’s naughty list who was also tough enough to ride a Harley tricycle,” 303Lowe executive creative director Richard Morgan said.

“But the little girl who ultimately won made us reframe what we thought ‘badass’ means. She showed us that being ‘badass’ isn’t just about motorcycles or breaking rules, it can be about a little kid who’s looking after her sister.”

To deliver the custom trike, Harley-Davidson and 303Lowe sent Santa’s elves to Charlotte’s house just in time for Christmas. The latest instalment, shot by Curious Film, launched online on Christmas Day.

The competition ran from 4-15 December across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
