The Campaign

BMW M automobiles polarize because they are unreasonable in many ways. They are too loud. They are too uncomfortble. They are too complicated. And that is exactly what brings their fans together. The endless, irrational love for their car – and being misunderstood by others.

Creative Execution

TOO LOW, TOO SENSITIVE, TOO NERDY... Each piece of our campaign focussed on a certain “TOO” Statement and told a story only true petrol heads can relate to. Every campaign asset led to a related article on the The web campaign was displayed via Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and banners. Thanks to the “M Statement Generator” users could label their own pictures with our campaign. The “TOO MUCH” diction was so popular among the fans, that they adapted to everything. The campaign was featured in many offline events like the presentation of the disguised prototype of the all-new BMW M5 (TOO CONFIDENTIAL) and the disguised prototype of the all-new BMW M8 (TOO MANY SECRETS). It was also used for merchandise such as shirts, sunglasses and stickers.

Our campaign exceeded the target of 500.000 page visitors. The numbers for the first 3 months only: • the had 726,476 visitors • the films had a reach of 59.5 millions and 19.7 million views • the BMW M Facebook page reached 2.5 million fans (+ 40 %) • the BMW M YouTube channel reached 63.000 fans (+ 23 %) • the BMW M Instagram page reached 1.4 Million fans (+ 1.328 %)

With the all-new we created a tailor-made home for real petrol heads where TOO MUCH is just right. To promote the new site to all car enthusiasts, we focused on the obvious flaws of the BMW M models and their owners.

The team at Marvelous Moscow have the answer. CCO, Artem Sinyavskiy shares the story of how their work for Skylink, 'The 1 MB Campaign', went on to win Bronze at Eurobest in 2017, despite the media budget being pulled a week before the launch of the campaign.

The gin, the city, the song and the search for the special colour of Seville

PS21 Madrid, the creative transformation company set up by founder of creative agency dommo Agustín Vivancos, was in its first year when the team began work on Searching for the Special Colour of Seville. It was a piece of work that would not only go on to win the agency’s first major award, Bronze in Creative Data at Eurobest in 2018, but would also become part of Seville’s cultural heritage. We hear how the idea came to life from Strategy Director, Sergio Garcia and Executive Creative Director, Victor Blanco.
