Hyundai demonstrates Venue can be parked anywhere in launch campaign

Hyundai has launched its new SUV model, Venue, with a campaign showing that the car is so conveniently sized, it will fit anywhere.

The ad shows the car comfortably parked in a variety of odd locations across a city, including a balcony, narrow laneway, and inside heavy machinery.

The campaign was created by Innocean Australia and produced by Revolver/Will O’Rourke.

Hyundai Australia director of marketing, Bill Thomas, said in a statement: “Venue is our smallest vehicle yet all the styling cues make it look a lot bigger. We needed a campaign that positioned it correctly as a compact vehicle yet delivered on its big personality. Everyone’s delighted with the outcome.”

Innocean Australia executive creative director, Steve Jackson, said: “Not much to say on this one. I liked the script. I like the ad better! Sometimes it’s that simple, right? We just defined the car’s superpowers and then let the directors do what they do best. I think they nailed it, hope you agree.”

The campaign will be executed across television broadcast, digital, social and point of sale.
