Audi ‘The Drive’ Automotive Audi Australia
At the onset of COVID-19 pandemic, Audi wanted to offer some much-needed respite, reconnecting house-bound drivers with the freedom of a road trip, while keeping the brand top of mind.
Australians were on nationwide lockdown, unable to physically enjoy a drive on the open road, and craving a break from the difficult news that was flooding their feeds. So we brought the open road to them, so they could enjoy it from the comfort of their homes.
Audi brought the open road to drivers at home with a slow TV experience, The Drive: a 4-hour long immersive journey through breathtaking Australian landscapes, in an Audi A6.
Part of the appeal for using a long, slow TV-style approach was to tap into the zen nature of the genre in a time when people seemingly crave it more than ever, encouraging a moment of calm in an otherwise frantic climate.
Although made with Australian drivers in mind, The Drive resonated around the world, drawing global media attention.
