In Australia, car brands are the second biggest advertisers on TV. The launch of the new Golf GTI needed to stand out, so the brand hijacked the entire ad break and turned a 30-second ad into a three-minute live gaming platform. Using a QR code, people could launch an in-browser racing game via their phones and race live against other people for the duration of the ad break. The campaign extended to OOH, digital and social.
