Volvo: S90 Open Road
Grey, New York, did for Volvo another great commercial non-linear storytelling. This time, the advert promotes new Volvo S90 luxury sedan. Narrated by the actor Josh Brolin, the film got inspiration from the poet Walt Whitman and his “Song of The Open Road.” This theme of Volvo’s “Our Idea of Luxury” theme was first introduced in 2015 with the XC90 model.
“We’re delighted by the buzz the S90 has created. It’s a beautiful car, thoughtful and thought through with Volvo’s unique Scandinavian design. We love the simple beauty of the Walt Whitman poem and find it, and the intriguing production, a perfect match to our car“, said Bodil Eriksson, VP for Product, Marketing, and Communication.
The campaign will be featured on television and digital.
