DDB Sydney has created a quirky campaign to show off the personalities of the Golf, Tiguan, Amarok and Polo.

Volkswagen has launched a charming campaign that taps into the quirky persona of each of its key models, including the Golf, Tiguan, Amarok and Polo.

The four films, by DDB Sydney, focus on each model’s personality with each coming to life by telling a real human story, such as confidence to get out of the mud for the powerful Amarok V6.

“We are proud of the work because it is inherently human. The best Volkswagen ads always are," DDB Australia chief creative officer Ben Welsh says.

"We’ve married human insights with Volkswagen models to create some charming stories.”

“When you’re off-roading and something goes wrong, you feel like a right idiot – especially when your mates find out," Volkswagen commercial vehicles marketing manager Nick Reid says.

"The Amarok spot demonstrates that whatever you get into, the Amarok V6 Canyon gives you the power to get out of.”

The integrated campaign is running on TV, digital, social, out of home and through a partnership with The Block.
