Video case study: Volkswagen's '5 second YouTube ad' sparks consumer curiosity

Volkswagen used YouTube video ads in a smart and fun way to create curiosity amongst viewers and lead them to engage with the brand. The ad was short and fast that the viewer could not skip and would be curious to know more about the advert. This was supported with an InVideo banner redirecting the viewer to the new Golf GTI’s website. The YouTube 5 second wait to skip ad turned around as a benefit by the brand and created the fastest ad on YouTube to create curiosity.

Case study: Volkswagen Twitter BannerVW capture the moment by aligning their brands with the Twitter messaging tool. Using Twitter in the advert creates interest and helps VW stand out from other motor manufacturers. By typing in your Twitter name it then looks for your tweets and claims to be finding the right car for you based on your content. Behind the scenes it seems to pull language from your Twitter feed and display this within the advert. It’s a neat way of dipping into Twitter, but the real benefit here is threefold: engagement with the customer, creating the spark of talkability about the brand, and VW’s alignment with the funky microblogging platform tech trendsetters have gravitated towards.
