Aygo Back On Screen With New TVC From FCB Joburg

Press Release - Africa, 07 December 2015

Toyota Aygo, launched in 2011 to appeal to the younger, first-time buyer living in a household with monthly income exceeding R30 000, is back on the screen with a new TVC from FCB Joburg.

Titled ‘Make Your Mark’, the advert is an entertaining 60-second spot that drives the extensive print, press, out-of-house and digital elements making up the rest of the campaign. It flighted for the first time on November 16 and, after a few weeks, was followed by a 30-second edited version to bolster reach and awareness.

Shot by Your Girlfriend over two days in a very cosmopolitan area of urban Johannesburg to complement the new bold styling of the Aygo, ‘Make Your Mark’ is a riff on the successful ‘boy needs car to be cool’ execution, but is so fresh and sleek that it seamlessly creates that inner smile South Africans have become accustomed to feeling whenever they watch a Toyota ad.

It was created by FCB Africa CEO and Chief Creative Officer Brett Morris with FCB Joburg’s Creative Director Tian van den Heever, Art Director Alex Christodoulou and Copywriter Gila Shapiro. 

The team used the print, press, out-of-house elements of the campaign to emphasise the new styling of the X-shaped grill along with the amazing price of R138 900 (at time of release). Digital played a major role launching the campaign – there were carousel ads on Facebook – and will continue to do so for the duration. There’ll be Aygo trick videos and Instagram puzzles, all developed to boost interaction with the brand and encourage test drives.
