Suzuki gets its skates on in latest campaign from Deloitte

Suzuki’s latest commercial, ‘Suzuki Skates’, has launched via Deloitte Digital to show off the off-road capability of the new Jimny 4×4.

The ad focuses on an off road skater navigating rugged Australian terrain in Suzuki skates. The result, according to the Japanese car maker, is “part car chase, part skate film, part absurd comedy, part western, and all fun”.

“For the super-compact, super-fun Suzuki Jimny, making downhill roller-skates shaped like tiny cars seemed like the most sensible thing to do,” said Matt Lawson, chief creative officer at Deloitte Digital.

The ad has been picked up by motoring magazines such as Topgear, with the Suzuki Jimny recently named World Urban Car of the Year in New York.

“In a highly compeitive automotive market it’s not always easy to stand out, unless you really stand for something,” added Daniel Mercuri, Suzuki Australia’s national marketing manager.

“This film is pure fun, and if there’s one thing that gets attention in our industry it’s the brand that doesn’t take itself too seriously.”
