Cape Times Drive Times

For Sale

Agency: Lowe

Description

The Cape Times newspaper supplement, the Drive Times, is one of the more reliable places to look if you're interested in buying a vehicle. In order to demonstrate this, we went about dramatising just the opposite by creating three rather interesting characters who are attempting to sell their vehicles directly to the public at a remarkably good price (via posters around the city, emailers and 'for sale' signs attached to their cars). When callers call the cellphone number (+27) 82 234 5800, they are greeted by one of our three fabricated characters: Clifford, Mike or Doris. However, these are merely pre-recorded messages made to sound as if the caller has in fact gotten through to them. Once the caller puts down the phone, they are immediately sent the following SMS: Before you consider buying a vehicle from anyone else, consult the Drive Times for new & used vehicles. Free every Thursday with the Cape Times. Know all about it.
