180 Amsterdam for BMW Motorrad – Unstoppable GPS Drawing

“Advertising’s always been about using entertainment to push a product and nowadays there are so many more channels to engage with people” – Andy Fackrell, Executive Creative Director 180 Amsterdam

UNSTOPPABLE was created in 2008 by 180 Amsterdam to advertise BMW Motorrad motorcycles. The campaign emphasized the GPS device on the bikes by encouraging riders to use it to create “drawing” via the Google Maps website. Instructions for taking part were given on a website, which explained how users could begin by mapping out their drawings on the site.

Coordinates were then supplied, which, when trasfewrred to the bike’s GPS device, would instruct participants where to drive in order to create their drawing o the map. The website also offered a section where users could upload their journeys, photographs and film to share with others.
