The TV commercial titled “Best Friends” was developed under Honda’s ‘Power of Dreams’ strategy and is a follow up of the award-winning “Space for Dreams”, a previous CR-V spot created by Orcí.
The new 60-second spot tells the emotional story of a young boy and his mom adopting a puppy together. Over time the boy and his dog develop a fun and loving relationship with each other. The whole family comes together and helps to train the dog. One day they receive a call that changes their lives. In the final moments of the spot, it’s revealed that the months-long sequence of raising and training the dog has been so that they could give him away to another family, as a service animal to help a child with special needs.
In the spot, the CR-V plays an important role as the vehicle that allows the young family to achieve their goals. “Best Friends” shows off the CR-V’s new design as well as the features important to the Latino target audience, such as roominess, convenience, and an elegant style.
In the spirit of the campaign, Orcí is creating an online Pet Adoption Drive that will use social media to drive awareness of the 2017 Honda CR-V and the satisfaction of providing a home for a pet in need. This portion of the campaign will launch in March on Honda’s Spanish language social media handle @HondaLatino.
“It’s always rewarding to work on the CR-V campaigns. We can tell meaningful stories to our audience and hopefully inspire families to keep dreaming and help others realize their dreams,” said Andrew Orcí, the agency’s chief executive officer.
