Nissan Juke Built To Thrill

Nissan has launched “Built To Thrill”, an integrated advertising campaign focusing on the inspiration behind the design of the Nissan JUKE crossover car built for men. The campaign brings together original design elements, a dune buggy (originally chosen for its high arched wheel design) and a motorbike (the inspiration for the interior design and console) to build a 3D image of a JUKE. The car seat fabric was inspired by wet suit material. A canoe and snowboard are also featured to appeal to Nissan JUKE’s target audience who seek excitement and fun in the city.

The 60 second television Built To Thrill commercial tells the story of assembling the Nissan JUKE in a world of adventure sports set to a musical backdrop composed by ‘The Horrors’.

Press advertising unveils an art installation of the Nissan JUKE, formed by adventure sport equipment, including a behind the scenes content film which can be accessed via QR codes on the outdoor and print executions, showing how the installation was brought together. The campaign will also be supported by retail, social media, digital and experiential activity.
