Global digital creative agency AnalogFolk Sydney has created a moody new campaign to launch Hyundai’s new N-Line sports package for the i30Sedan, launching across YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and cinemas.

The 90-second launch film ‘After Dark’ takes a non-traditional approach to a traditional car category with dream-like sequences and a quirky, original soundtrack featuring deconstructed nursery rhymes and rap using only Australian talent.

The spot also stars real people, not actors, who pursue their side hustles and passions outside of their day jobs.

AnalogFolk Executive Creative Director Richard Morgan said the campaign aims to capture the attention of people who have a quiet, innate sense of competitiveness and love the thrill of driving.

“Early on, we resolved that if you’re the sort of person who likes to curl up with a light Adam Sandler comedy on Netflix and an early night, then this isn’t the car, nor the spot for you,” said Morgan.

The car’s all-new virtual cockpit helped inspire the idea to set the campaign at night, when the car, like the hero characters who drive it, light up and come alive.

“The need to step outside of our comfort zone and overcome barriers – real or imagined – is something that our audience intuitively understands,” Morgan said. “Setting the spot at night, when the senses are heightened and our hero characters are hard at work whilst most people are safely tucked up in bed, allowed us to interweave surprising, nocturnal elements in playful, non-linear ways, using the urban landscape as a backdrop.”

True to the new Hyundai i30 N-Line itself, the campaign disrupts many Australian automotive conventions and traditions, using a combination of technology, performance and youthful attitude.

The campaign of 90-, 30, and 15-second cutdowns is running now, supported by online and out-of-home.
