Digital Campaign

Umparken im Kopf

What people think determines the way they see the world. Things people have prejudices about they often don’t see at all. In February 2014, this understanding led Opel to a national cross-media brand campaign, aimed at proving wrong all kinds of prejudices, preconceptions and popular misapprehensions around the car brand. This is supposed to ultimately lead to a 180-degree shift in society’s opinion: a “U-Turn in your head”. Initially, Opel, as the originator of the campaign, remained anonymous. The campaign caused a stir as Germany marvelled, debated and puzzled – prior to the surprising disclosure.
