Cultural/Context information for the jury

In our campaign, we communicate the fact that the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team didn't have time to realize a big campaign for the season start. Therefor our copies sound as if they were written under extreme time pressure: rough, bumpy, a little bit desperate and far away from perfect. To create humor, we carefully chose a dry and serious tonality with a subtle touch of irony. This had the effect that our copies feel a like serious statements rather than a joke - even though they are a punchlines. A good contribution to our overall goal: A series of entertaining ads that could've been made by someone who had never made an ad before.
