Air Canada’s ‘Travel Like a Canadian’ Campaign Featuring Sandra Oh



The latest campaign from Air Canada celebrates some of the country’s unique values. 'Travel Like a Canadian' takes a playful look at how Canadians travel and interact with other cultures with the help of award winning actress and proud Canadian, Sandra Oh.

In the uber-friendly campaign, the 'Killing Eve' and 'Grey's Anatony' actress demonstrates how anyone can travel like a Canadian. Oh, who was born in Ottawa, drops references to quintessentially Canadian things like ketchup chips, bagged milk and apologizing for anything and for any reason.

“So no matter where you’re going, whether you’re Canadian or not, traveling like one can bring the world a little closer,” declares the “Killing Eve” star in the 97-second spot.

The 90-second spot from FCB Canada is directed by Adam Reid via Holiday Films.

Digitas UK Creates Sequel to High-Octane Animated Film Showcasing Honda’s Return To F1’s Success



Digitas UK has created a high-octane sequel to the acclaimed ‘Powered By Honda’ film released in April earlier this year, to promote Honda’s return to success in Formula One in the run up to the Japanese Grand Prix.

The new animated film celebrates Honda’s endless race by showcasing some of the key moments from Mexico 1965 to the 2019 Suzuka circuit. These have been brought to life through the stories of the best laps, moments, cars and engines in a blend of anime-style animation and real F1 footage featuring Honda legends such as Richie Ginther, Ayrton Senna & Jenson Button.

The brief was to create excitement and buzz around Honda’s trip to Suzuka for its home race, the Japanese Grand Prix; and to celebrate its history, with one eye ahead to the future and to capture the message: no matter what the era or who the opponents, Honda constantly strives to be the best - every lap.



Masashi Yamamoto, Managing Director, at Honda states, “This video summarises Honda’s time in F1 and shows just why the sport is part of our company DNA. We have enjoyed some success with the two Red Bull teams this year and there’s been real enthusiasm from our fans. Let’s fight together to repay their support with a great result in Suzuka.”

The ‘Powered by Honda’ positioning - a strapline made famous following a string of racing successes for Honda in the 80s and 90s - is brought to life in this sequel film which uses the same, distinctive aesthetic, by Mainframe. This reflects both Japanese animation conventions and Honda’s own iconic colour palette of white, black and red. It marries the visceral sounds of Honda engines with a propulsive music composition, inspired by traditional Japanese Taiko drumming. Real footage, supplied by Formula One, is also interspersed throughout.

The 60” hero film launches on Tuesday 8th October in the UK on YouTube, Twitter and Instagram. A 30” film will run across Japanese TV and a 15” will play in Instagram stories. A 60” film will also be launched in China. A series of shorter 15-second videos have also been created.

The campaign highlights the partnership with Scuderia Toro Rosso and Aston Martin Red Bull Racing.
