Weather banner

Agency Network: 
April 2009


Nothing changes like the weather, well except for the Toyota Venza.
To illustrate the Venza’s versatility, big box ads were designed to show the Venza driving through real time, up-to-the-minute weather forecasts that were accurate to wherever the viewer was in Canada. If it happened to be raining outside, then the Venza was shown driving through the rain. At the same time, the relevant feature of the Venza was highlighted (e.g. Vehicle Stability Control for rain, AWD for snow, hp for clear days). Should the temperature suddenly drop and the rain turn to snow, and day turn to night then the weather condition and the time of day the Venza was driving through would also change. Each of the big box ads featured the viewer's current weather condition, outside temperature, city location, and time of day.

The fact that this car can drive in all conditions isn't revolutionary. That message is as old as dirt. But the way the banner reacts to the featured article's content is what makes it memorable.

The featured article is made up.

If the banner worked off of existing headlines in the weather section, that would have been cool.
