Honda Illusions Impossible Made Possible

Honda has released “Illusions”, a television commercial with the tag line, “An impossible, made possible”. The Illusions campaign aims to tackle preconceptions about SUVs by positioning the CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC Diesel as the economical SUV. In essence, an SUV offering a bigger car experience, but with smaller car economy. The TV advert shows the CR-V taking a journey through a series of optical illusions, all in-camera and all centred around the CR-V. The commercial will be supported by a fully integrated campaign comprising of print, OOH, digital, DM and dealership comms.
