Volkswagen Environmental Crazes

Volkswagen Group Australia is launching the Golf BlueMotion with an integrated advertising campaign positioning the car as eco-friendly and fuel efficient. The Environmental Crazes campaign includes press (including a special wrap for the Sun Herald and Sunday Herald Sun on World Environment Day), microsite, out of home and a series of online infocommercials. The tongue-in-cheek ads feature environ-mental products, the Shopping Shirt ( the Yumbrella ( and the Magnifryer (, and asks consumers ‘Why be environ-mental when you can be environ-normal?’
