Agency: Dentsu Aegis Network
Markets: India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam
Campaign scope: Wakudoki is Toyota’s first digitally led campaign and is running across multiple digital channels including social, web, and mobile.
Background: Quick on the heels of Jungle Wakudoki, which garnered more than 1.5 million views in six weeks, Toyota launched Beach Waudoki in an effort to capture a youth fan base for the automobile brand.
The Wakudoki Dance Contest invites users to record a video of themselves dancing to the original music, and upload it. The most viewed video uploaded in each country will win a set of Beats by Dre earphones. The grand winner in each country will win a trip for two to Tokyo
Press release quote: Ted Lim, Regional Chief Creative Officer at Dentsu Aegis Network Southeast Asia: "The public response to Jungle Wakudoki has been overwhelming, pushing over 1.5 million YouTube views in just a few weeks. TIME commented, 'This Toyota Ad Is Utterly Insane - And Wonderful' and deemed it, 'The Most Delightful Two Minutes Of Your Day'. We are chuffed and hope Beach Wakudoki will be received just as warmly."
Comments: We found both ads funny. However, Jungle Wakudoki has the edge, perhaps because it came out first.
