- A Digital Video Commercial (DVC) that communicates the same with an emotional connect without playing on the ‘Fear’ angle.
We began with the insight that as kids, we always loved to crash our toy cars, while boasting about how cool and awesome our fathers are. Hence, we came up with the idea of incorporating bad driving elements like breaking signals, not wearing the seat belt etc. in a Digital Video Commercial featuring kids, something that the adults will have an emotional connect with.
