One award is nice, but two is so much nicer! Sherlock’s ANTI-THIEFT ad campaign has been rewarded anew!
Longueuil, June 10, 2014 — After winning the 2014 CRÉA Grand Prize in the TV advertising campaign – Service category for its Anti-Thieft ad campaign last April, on June 5th, Sherlock along with its agency, Bleublancrouge, was awarded the 2014 STRAT Grand Prize at the 8th edition of the Strat Competition, which recognizes the best communication-marketing strategies in Québec.
Resale is the root of the automotive theft problem, which is why the Sherlock antitheft marking system chose to make this the direct focus of its communication-marketing strategy.
“We sought to explain to the consumer that, in eliminating the resale potential of a stolen vehicle, Sherlock has made itself the enemy of car thieves, since it quashes their primary objective. Sherlock therefore protects a vehicle by attacking the source of the problem, the thieves’ motivation,” states Simon Cazelais, Vice-President, Consulting at Bleublancrouge.
“By using a thief as the advertising spokesperson, we remind Quebecers that automotive theft is ever present and that, despite the humorous tone of the interventions, this is a matter that must be taken seriously,” notes Anne-Marie Jodoin, General Manager of Sherlock Antitheft Marking.
