Ethias and BBDO approached the Brussels Motor Show 2020 from an alternative angle: a 45-second TV spot shows a girl cycling carelessly through the countryside. Over the years, she turns to an ever-growing car and her pace slows down in traffic. Until one day she decides to stop standing still: she again chooses the freedom she felt as a young girl on a bicycle.
The music, sung by children, perfectly summarizes Ethias’s message: cars should not be banned, but if we want to move forward with mobility, we have to improve our ways of combining vehicles. A bold campaign for a brand whose core business is car insurance. Yet we need that progressive mindset for our mobility, our environment and our future.
You’ll also notice that inspiring attitude in a series of 30-second radio spots about a father and his son. The kid, brimming with youthful naivety, asks simple yet thought-provoking questions.
The campaign also consists of a 30-second recut TV spot, social media posts, OOH and DOOH. All carrying the same message: Ethias insures your car and any other means of transport with a smile.
