The idea was based on the insight that external distractions aren’t the only distractions that cause crashes and all too often it’s our own thoughts that are at play. For radio Ogilvy decided to use the familiar voice of Google Maps to show the insidious nature of becoming lost in thought while driving.
That time John Key Didn't - Hawke's Bay Regional Council
The excellent story-telling with this radio script was a highlight for the judges with this particular advertisement.
