S’HOT 2011 review: Basejumper

The Client: Land Rover
The Agency: Y&R
The Brief: Target the lifestyle and leisure segment of the Defender consumer by playing off its class leading off-road capabilities.
Creative Solution: Put on your gear, drive up the Matroosberg mountains, park your car and jump out the door. The defender is a vital piece of equipment for the more adventurous at heart. The ad was originated out of the Cape Town office and is running in press and outdoor across Europe as well as locally in SA 4X4 magazine, Getaway and Property Magazine.
Creative Team: Clinton Bridgeford, Liam Wielopolski, Graham Lang (Y&R London) (Executive Creative directors), Ntobeko Ximba (Art director), Deanne Longmore (Creative director), Bryan Traylor @locker14 (Photographer), Lee Aldridge, Stuart Frost (Y&R London), Dillon @still (Retouching)
