BMW offers the widest range of SUV models on the market: The X Series. But with every new model it gets harder to promote the vehicles individually. That is why we conceived and implemented an umbrella campaign for the entire X Series. The international campaign follows communication using the “Choose your X” umbrella concept – launched on the release of the new THE X1 and THE X6.
Our core-concept contained a simple truth: Independence is the freedom of choice. And as the letter X – the same symbol, every SUV from BMW is tagged with – is used as the ultimate symbol of free choice, the core of the concept is derived directly from the product.
The umbrella is adapted to all markets worldwide and will be used for at least three years: Three TV adverts, two online launch videos and eight other videos of various lengths.
As the campaign was conceived in a highly modular way, each new model can receive a stand-alone TVC while still fitting perfectly under the overarching roof. The first addition after the main roll-out was THE X1 PHEV, which we conceived and shot roughly one year after the initial campaign:
