Hyundai Preroll Skip Ad

Hyundai is promoting the Elantra’s auto emergency braking system with a preroll Youtube film with a difference. The Hyundai Preroll Skip Ad’s concept evolved out of peoples’ annoyance at pre-roll ads, and their tendency to skip them as soon as they pop up. Innocean made the “skip” button a distraction for the driver in their ad too. In “Hyundai Preroll Skip Ad” a persistent driver tries to rid the screen of YouTube’s distracting “skip ad” button. He almost hits a mother and daughter crossing the street, but with the help of Elantra’s auto emergency breaking, his car stops just in time.
