Fight For the Future of Oceans is at the Heart of New Volvo Film for Sky Atlantic, Created by Grey London



Volvo - The Unseen Ocean from Grey London on Vimeo.

The fight against plastic pollution in our oceans is at the heart of a new film by Volvo Car UK and Grey London, for Sky Atlantic.

‘The Unseen Ocean’ focuses on Tom Franklin, a primary school teacher who also runs City Kids Surfing, a programme that teaches children to swim and surf, and educates them about the environment.

With Tom’s mission to help children from the UK’s cities become future guardians of the world’s oceans, the film follows a group of young children as they travel from south London to the Cornish coast and captures the moving moment they get to witness the natural beauty of the sea, before being given the chance to splash in the waves for the first time in their lives.

As well as feeling the power of the water against their skin, they are also given lessons in its fragility. They collect plastic waste that’s washed up on the beaches and are taught about the impact this has on the delicate ecosystems in and around the planet’s oceans.

Tom, who was a teacher in South London, developed his ocean education programme after realising the future health of the seas lies in the hands of kids who may not have experienced its awesome beauty first hand. He set up his not-for-profit organisation to take children to British coastlines to help them understand their role in protecting it for generations to come.

The campaign supports Volvo Cars’ sustainability programme, which is one of the most ambitious in the automotive sector. Earlier this year, the firm announced that by 2025 it aims for at least 25% of the plastics used in every newly launched Volvo car to be made from recycled material. It has also committed to removing single-use plastics from its offices and events across the globe by the end of 2019. In September, Volvo became the first and only car maker to endorse the G7 Ocean Plastics Charter, which commits governments to take concrete steps towards addressing the issue of ocean plastics pollution.

Tom Franklin said: “We’re never going run out of inner-city children, but we are going to run out of clean, pure ocean. If we put the two together, what a combination that would be, what a powerful force. We’re trying to come up with a truly humanistic approach to ocean sustainability. Helping these kids fall in love with the sea is a vital step in safeguarding our planet’s future.”

‘The Unseen Ocean’, which features the Volvo’s XC90 T8 Twin Engine and V90 T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid vehicles, will air on Sky Atlantic from 1 October as part of Volvo Car UK’s sponsorship deal with the channel and will be available on Video On Demand for a year.

This film, the sixth in the series, was directed by D.A.R.Y.L via Pulse Productions and shot on location South London and Porthcothan Bay, Cornwall. Previous films have been recognised with awards including a D&AD Pencil and Cannes Lions.

DQ Provides Happy Experiences for Families via Subscription Box Campaign


As the school year comes to a close and millennial families gear up for summer, DQ launched a first-of-its-kind subscription box filled with experiences aimed at IRL family moments. Even the box itself is designed to be part of the fun.

The DQ Box of Happy was rolled out this June and was offered as a limited three-month subscription box service with a different summer-themed activity each month. Starting with “Camp-In”, the box transforms into a non-flammable, family-room-safe campfire that is illuminated by a flame video via smartphone, using tech to heighten the experience instead of competing with it. The box also includes a shadow puppet storybook, flashlight, playing cards, and a “forest floor blanket” where the camp-in can take place. July’s “Water Park” box includes a built-in sprinkler and water-themed soundtrack families can play from their phones, and in August subscribers can “Road Trip” with a box that features a cardboard smartphone camcorder case, encouraging families to record their memories. Each box comes with a $10 DQ gift card.



The concept came from Kansas City-based creative agency Barkley, which drew inspiration for the boxes from their modern consumer knowledge that millennials prefer to use their purchasing power on experiences over material things. “Subscription boxes by nature are just a way to accumulate more stuff,” says Tim McCracken, Creative Director at Barkley, “We wanted to turn the subscription box concept on its head and create a box that offers what families really want this summer: time together.”

“Families create sweet memories whenever they visit a DQ store,” says Maria Hokanson, Executive Vice President of Marketing at American Dairy Queen Corporation (ADQ), “Box of Happy extends this delightful experience outside of our restaurants, bringing families together over campfires, road trips and more—experiences that shape the season just as much as enjoying soft-serve in the sunshine.”

The DQ Box of Happy subscription includes all three boxes for $45 and is currently sold out, but those who missed out will still be able to download an activity from a box each month at DQBoxofHappy.com.

This is the latest campaign under DQ’s newly launched tagline “Happy Tastes Good,” which positions the iconic brand as a destination for happy moments and memories. The new tagline replaces “Fan Food. Not Fast Food,” which has been the brand’s tagline since 2014.
