Show. Don’t tell. It’s an age old maxim in this business, and one that 180LA has taken to heart for their Mitsubishi Motors client. And it’s working — the brand’s market share has almost doubled year-to-date with significant monthly sales increases every month, since 180LA took on the business 19 months ago.
For this new “Ride the Storm” spot, the 180LA team chased a storm from LA to Kansas with the expert help of Weather Underground. The film was shot documentary-style with Directors Emmett and Brendan Malloy, two brothers who say chasing unpredictable parts of nature is a big part of their filmmaking process. A member of Mitsubishi’s social media team went along for the ride, tweeting and posting their whereabouts.
Gavin Milner, CD for 180LA, says “The team hit on a beautifully simple premise that elevated our message above all the scary winter season driving noise: with Mitsubishi’s all-wheel control technology.”
