When A Mini Is a Giant - Brilliant Advertising of the Mini Cooper

Mini Cooper not only has creative advertising...they have creative ways of displaying them and always find creative places to put them.

Beginning with some very creative print ads.

To promote mini.com, this one reads: Find out why a MINI handles the way it does at MINI.com

From the Let's Motor campaign.

Now my personal favorite print ad.

Reads: Let's take it off. Let's take it all off.

This is a magazine with a printed wrap. When the wrap is removed, so does the cover of the mini cooper.

Ok, I have two favorites, who could forget the transformer.

And one more "sleek track" billboard.

This billboard actually uses information stored on a computer chip in Mini Coopers, so when Mini drivers are going past, they will receive a personalized message.

Mini has also been known to use some very nontraditional techniques...

Some more interesting guerilla tactics include this urinal race course, with 3D pylons and all and take a Mini test drive.

How funny...

The Mini ‘Size’ campaign attempts to demonstrate how much interior space the Mini has. It’s strategically placed at the top of a subway entrance so it appears that several people are piling into the car or exiting the car.

What do you think of the giant ad campaign for such a small product?
