Boxes | Let's Unlock Cities

Description: 

Uber is highlighting the absurdity of the traffic situation in Asia’s biggest cities as part of its first ever brand purpose campaign.

Using cardboard boxes to represent cars, the film humorously shows the reality of how people get around currently and ends with images of a city being overrun by boxes. The film was shot on the streets of Bangkok with around 200 extras, the soundtrack is ”Bare Necessities” from the 1967 Disney film ”The Jungle Book”.

Film advertisment created by Forsman & Bodenfors, Sweden for Uber, within the category: Transport.

From someone who does live in a big city and does not own a car this is exactly how i feel about the issue with 'cities'. I think maybe american's won't get this because they Looooove their cars but for sure this works with Urban consumers. - Great ad.
