Edgy, energetic, passionate. These were just some of the responses to Mercedes-Benz France’s Sensations campaign, created to help modernise the iconic brand and introduce its new SUV. The immersive experience focuses on The Monolith, a black box that’s crafted into a car by the movements of a series of American football players, skateboarders, dancers and others who represent Mercedes-Benz’s engineers. The core of the integrated campaign was a 14-minute YouTube ad, from which users could unlock an additional 25 hours of content. And they just did that: The TrueView ad achieved an astonishing 69% view rate and attracted 66% more subscribers to its channel.
