Mercedes-Benz USA

 

#GLApacked

Challenge: Promote the all-new GLA—without having access to it.

 

Solution: Unearth the exact dimensions of the GLA’s cargo area, fab up a custom bed liner, then hire Instagram influencers to show what they’d take with them on an adventure.

 

Result: The Instagram campaign, #GLApacked. The GLA is a small SUV, and the rest of the Mercedes-Benz lineup only makes it look more so. We demonstrated that it was worthy of its Silver Star by showing just how much the GLA can haul, and we did it without ever laying our hands on one.
