Leo Burnett Istanbul and Fiat Urge People to Hold on to What is Important
‘Don’t Let Go’ is an emotional reminder to drive safely
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles “Don’t Let Go,” GPC Rating: 7.0
People tend to multitask while driving. They put on makeup, answer texts or eat a snack. This means they take a hand off the steering wheel, so Fiat and Leo Burnett Istanbul teamed up to create an emotional reminder to keep both hands of the steering wheel.
The new print ad depicts a close up of a man’s hands holding a steering wheel and a pair of smaller hands entwined with his. The man is wearing a wedding ring, leading the viewer to believe the hands could belong to a child or wife. The copy at the top of the ad reads, “Don’t let go. Both hands always on the steering wheel.”
The ad elegantly reminds people not only to remain in complete control of their vehicles and not let go of the steering wheel, but also to hold on to the loved one waiting at the end of the road.
