NFFTY 2012 Volvo Commercial

NFFTY Updates

Designed Around You
Volvo Cars of North America has been a proud sponsor of NFFTY for 5 years running. Every year the team at NFFTY takes Volvo’s current brand theme and creates a custom commercial designed to excite the NFFTY festival audience. With the theme of “Designed Around You” this spot shows how the  2012 S60 brings together two teens on a first date.

It was a snowy day in January when we shot the spot. We weren’t expecting the snow, but it actually turned out to add to the mood and emphasize the warm feeling inside the Volvo S60.

AND…if you didn’t hear, you can have your shot at making a Volvo short film and win a trip to Sweden! Learn more
