GM Wants You To “Lock ‘n Roll”

Sales promotions tend to be distracting from the brand promise. For instance, a sweeps that awards one winner a trip to Disneyworld may appeal to a brand’s core target, but in most cases it has nothing whatsoever to do with the product or service offering the pie-in-the-sky vacation.
General Motors, with the help of McCann and campaign spokesperson Suze Orman, is taking a different approach. For a limited time consumers who qualify for a low interest, or zero interest loan, can lock the rate in for their next vehicle purchase from GM, provided they buy again within three years.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
