Holden has unveiled its latest campaign to promote the hard-to-beat capabilities of the car brand’s Colorado range.
Created by The Monkeys, part of Accenture Interactive, the integrated campaign puts the Holden Colorado through its paces, proving the truck is not to be outdone.
Directed by Hamish Rothwell of Goodoil Films, the brand film features a man and his Colorado take on a mountain goat in an epic race to the top of a mountain.
In this battle of man versus beast, the driver and his vehicle challenge deep rivers, large boulders and steep-mountain climbs to outdo his goat nemesis.
The campaign will roll out across broadcast, out-of-home advertising, digital, radio, press, and on Holden-owned social channels.
The Monkeys’ chief creative officer for Melbourne, Ant Keogh, said the ad’s strength is that it’s simple but unexpected.
“It’s hugely entertaining while subtly showing off driving performance and ruggedness.”
Holden’s general manager of marketing and digital, Natalie Davey, said: “‘Not To Be Outdone’ is the perfect platform to showcase the capability of our Colorado range, and the campaign brings this to life in a bold and memorable way, which we know will break through the advertising clutter in a fresh and confident way.”
