Vrrooooooom: Chevy uses human sound effects in new TVC

JAKARTA - Commonwealth Bangkok, a McCann Worldgroup agency in Thailand, has launched a new campaign for the Chevrolet Spin in Indonesia.

Highlighting the tagline 'Small engine, big fun", the campaign's TV spot features a family that provides its own sound effects while driving around town—presumably because the car itself is so quiet. The spot is part of the brand's integrated campaign, titled ‘Spin some fun’.

The campaign is running on TV now and enjoys support from a full social-media campaign that runs until January.

“In a world where technology dominates, it was refreshing to go 'old school' and use human voices alone to make all the noises of the car,” said Thierry Halbroth, executive creative director, Commonwealth Bangkok Hub. “The cast was fantastic, and thanks to the coaching of professional beatboxers, they were able to deliver a solid performance for total amateurs, bringing the message of the commercial very much alive.”
