If you're looking for a tangible metaphor of the fragmentation in media, look no further than the 2 Cheap Cars billboard currently on show in Auckland. The company's single billboard has been split into three disparate sections, creating a completely disjointed message.
The media placement clearly wasn't the best in this instance, but it strangely seems on-brand. It's as though the company is saying: "Screw this billboard. We're focusing on selling cheap cars." Which, in a sense, would actually make this a brilliant piece of advertising.
What at first starts as a standard celebrity endorsement video for a new product quickly descends into one man's—completely unhinged—obsession with running in Nike's new video series, featuring comedian Kevin Hart (and his glorious beard). The series is introduced via a short clip, showing Hart excitedly unboxing the new product. From there, the madness ensues, with Hart putting on his best impersonation of Forrest Gump crossed with the protagonist from Into the Wild.
