The campaign for the launch of the ix35 Series II compact SUV, by Innocean in Sydney, features a TVC that ends with a cliffhanger—it's unclear whether the young couple decides to take the rough, narrow, curvy offroad route to their destination, or a safe, well-paved highway.
Online, interactive banners will allow people to choose the end of the adventure, and dedicated online films then show the results of each choice. The alternate endings are slated to debut within a week, according to the agency.
The brand had found that consumers, although aware of the car's design and safety, lacked awareness of its offroad capabilities.
