Tinnyvision talks to stoned drivers

Editor TVCs, News Make a Comment

Clemenger BBDO Wellington and OMD are having success using Snapchat with a targeted mobile campaign aimed at reaching drivers who are stoned.

To date, 7800 people have been drawn in by a group of young men using the Snapchat account name Tinnyvision to document their sessions.

A targeted mix of online message boards and social channels was used to get people to follow Tinnyvision.

“This is an example of story and channel working together,” said Clemenger MD Andrew Holt. “The right type of people are following Tinnyvision because it’s believable and relevant. It makes sense that these guys would post their sessions on Snapchat – you see it once, then it’s gone.”

The story, shot by Taika Waititi and Curious films, is a first for NZTA who are experimenting with innovative ways to get their messages to the right people.

NZTA advisor Rachel Prince said: “Reaching this audience is really hard. They’re very good at tuning out traditional broadcast channels, so we created a new one. From online comments, we know the message is getting through. And they’re sticking with the story right to the end. It’s exciting to be breaking new ground.”
