Volkswagen Pleasure Before Business

Volkswagen is promoting the seventh Passat model in Australia with “Pleasure for Business”, an integrated advertising campaign focusing on recreation and work. The new Passat is the first Volkswagen with fatigue detection and City Emergency Braking function. The Pleasure Before Business campaign centres on a television commercial celebrating activities Australians like to do before work, and the role a car plays in helping them put ‘Pleasure before business’. The campaign includes print advertising, online ads and a microsite.
