Our #AskAnyHondaDriver Campaign Performs Just Like a Honda

By:
NorCal Honda’s #AskAnyHondaDriver testimonial campaign is in its 4th year and is the most robust campaign we’ve created so far — with 19 long-format web films and 28 unique TV/web videos since 2015. Talk about legendary dependability.
This year, we feature four new happy Honda stories from all over Northern California. 
2014 Accord Sport | Chris & Kelsey | Monterey 
Teeing it up are two golf pros who definitely drive for show.

2017 CR-V | Samanta | Richmond 
Second, is super sweet Samanta Beltran, who’s a Contra Costa Country school counselor by day, a baker by night and a lifelong Honda driver by choice.

2010 & 2011 Fits | Peters Family | Santa Rosa 
Third, we have 6 feet 6 Jacob, 5-foot Lauren and their 150-pound Great Dane Charles who believe their two Fits are the perfect fit for their modern family.

2016 Odyssey | The Crandalls | Tiburon 
Lastly, The Crandall Family, who have three tiny tots and one of the tightest turns in Tiburon.

Not only does this campaign help drive Honda’s record sales, but it drives people into action. Or should we say, interaction? Before we launched the first five stories back in 2015, research from BSA’s trademark “Discovery” phase revealed that Honda drivers love their Hondas so much, they want to tell the world. So we gave them a stage. We created an interactive platform on NorCal Honda’s Facebook page called “Straight From The Street” where Honda drivers can share their own stories for a chance to have it professionally produced for television and digital media.  

As you can see, it worked. And keeps working, becoming a self-fulfilling cycle of success. Every user-submitted story is a free ad for Honda. And the folks we’ve chosen to feature, above-the-fold so-to-speak, have become evangelists, sharing their souped-up stories with their own networks creating tons of efficiently-priced eyeballs. Hows that for performance? 

And here’s a look back on the 17 previous Honda stories we’ve created since 2015.

Ally’s Story “Civic” :30

Leyder’s Story “Accord” :30

Daljeet’s Story “Fit: Wedding Planner” :30

The Valentines Sale

By:

Did you know only 54% of Americans celebrated Valentine’s Day last year? That’s down 10% vs. 2007.

Did you know that 41% of people “dread Valentine’s Day”?

Our Behavioral Economist, Howie Leibach, did. And what he discovered drove the brief for this year’s Northern California Honda Dealer’s Valentine’s Day promotional event: There are a lot of things that women do not want for Valentine’s Day, and frankly, what they do want, they are happy to get for themselves.

“Lunch Date” :30

To bring this discovery to life, we brought in Best Selling author of “Otherwise Engaged” and Baker Street Irregular, Suzanne Finnamore, who teamed up with BSA Design Director, Ken Woodard, to craft the perfect voice. It’s authentic. It’s real. (Actually, the first draft was a little too real for Prime Time TV!) We also enlisted Director of Photography, Svetlana Cvetko, to create an elegant film look blending beauty and strength. Finally Umlaut Editor, Jessica Congdon, gave “Lunch Date” the perfect final touch.

The Valentines Monologues:

“Guess What I Want” :30

“Please and Thank You” :30

Using the Interrotron, a camera rig that helps the director make eye contact with the subject while looking directly into the camera lens, we were able to get beautiful authentic performances as Suzanne asked our women what they really wanted, and even more humorously, what they didn’t want for Valentine’s Day. And Rough House Editor, Penny Krueger, found just the right answers.

Honda’s Delicious End to Happy Honda Days

By:

Smell that? That’s not just the smell of Honda’s tasty new Gingerbread spokesman, it’s also the scent of an altering national mood.

“Gingerbread Man” :30 TV Commercial

Our Behavioral Economist, Howie Leibach, detected something in the air this holiday season. People are so exhausted by political issues and global concerns, they are in no mood for anyone trying to sell them something. You probably noticed how many advertisers responded with heart-warming holiday messages, whose connection to a brand promise was at times tenuous. We however had a job to do: We were tasked with creating urgency, in the face of an agitated National mood, for the final days of Honda’s biggest national sales event.

So our content creators dreamt up this holiday fantasy where a Gingerbread Man, trying to avoid being eaten, heads to the Honda dealer for an escape ride. And luckily there’s just a few days left!

Awesome! Urgent yet fun and fanciful. The only problem was it required a full-film shoot plus character development plus CG animation and we only had a month to make it.

That’s when our mighty producers and account peeps squeezed enough time out of our schedule to pull off the Holiday miracle. Then our other-worldly talented friends at Bent, especially animation director and karaoke killa, Josh Cox, helped us create the perfectly baked, high anxiety, Woody Allen inspired Gingerbread Man. Of course before we turned our delicious little friend into a TV star and internet sensation complete with life-size POP and digital assets, we had to find just the right guy. You can see how tough that was in the “lost casting sessions” videos created by our own Harry Houdini Chapman.

“Gingerbread Man Auditions” Social Media Video 2

The Gingerbread Man also made an appearance at our annual Baker Street “Santa Stealing” Party.

This was Baker Street at its best: data, insight, creativity, execution, tremendous hustle, and I bet you’ve seen it out there in the market ’cause our media squad rules, for the win.

NorCal Honda Takes on Millennials

By:

#Millennials #and #Adulting

While developing work for Honda’s latest campaign, targeted toward younger car buyers, we discovered The Holy Grail of Millennial Marketing Secrets:

Millennials are young humans!!!

There it is. We shared our billion bitcoin secret.

We also created a campaign that taps into a powerful life stage our 20-something target is experiencing: “Adulting” — that moment when you find yourself, for the first time, doing very grownup things. And to break through the skepticism, millennials have toward slickly-prepared advertising, we enlisted Bent Image Lab to create a look that seems to be homemade and organic, yet jumps from the small mobile screen with cutting edge technology. By the way, Millennials would hate that last sentence.

Hanna Boys Center. Truly making a difference.

By:

We were blessed with the opportunity to help the Hanna Boys Center of Sonoma spread their proven approach to helping at-risk teens. Everyone who touched this project echoed the same sentiment: man, it’s nice to work on something that is truly making a difference. Thanks to all involved.

Our web video for the Hanna Boys Center tells the true story of a Hanna student who overcame enormous obstacles to become a successful, productive adult, thanks to the Hanna Boys Center.

Our film shows how Hanna’s unique approach to caring for troubled kids really works. Hanna doesn’t ask, “what’s wrong with this kid?” They ask, “what happened to this kid?” And how the committed staff handles the kids from that pivotal philosophical belief is why the Hanna Way is worth spreading. We hope our film helps to do just that.

Cinematographer, Cliff Traiman, generously provided his clever camera work to create a seamless journey, falling at first into a future of despair, but thanks to Hanna, changes direction and soars toward hope. Special thanks to Beast editorial who refused payment for their brilliant post. That’s giving back, man.

An Unprecedented Presidents Day

By:

“Did you hear the Presidents’ news?”
“Ya. It’s Unprecedented.”

That’s the premise of our new TV commercial and internet films for NorCal Honda’s Unprecedented Presidents Day Sale.

:30 Unprecedented Presidents Day TV Spot

Our Honda Presidential Icons are back by popular demand and this time find themselves talking politics in a diner. At least that’s what it seems like they are discussing in this surreal spot that begins like a scene out of Pulp Fiction before revealing George Washington and Abe Lincoln having pancakes and bacon and chewing the fat about the unprecedented president news. Of course, the news turns out to be unprecedented deals on new Hondas.

Subsequent internet films drop in on the First and Sixteenth Presidents as they get their groove on in a new Civic and see how many Potuses they can put in the back of a CR-V. Fun stuff created on the fly at our TV shoot by our in-house crew, Lesly Pyle and Harrison Chapman.
