The startup Campanda from Berlin starts it’s marketing offensive: From the 5th January on, the first TV spot of the online RV rental will be live on German-speaking television.

„New experience of freedom“ – is the slogan of the Campanda online RV marketplace. “Holiday is the most beautiful time of the year. With our spot, we want to inspire the viewers to consider camping trips and convince them to embark on this individual adventure, “says Mathias Rhode, Marketing Manager at Campanda.

That is why, in the TV spot, the focus lies on eroticism, mobility and unlimited freedom. In it, a panda, the ‘Campanda’, leads the viewers through the story. In the advertisement, which was filmed on Gran Canaria, there are different holiday scenes: a family, a couple on the beach, a group of young people at the camp fire – they all travel with an RV. The goal is to establish the holiday with the camper as an alternative way of travel.

In the first sequence of the TV commercial, viewers watch the panda bear at the wheel of a motorhome as he drives along a curvy road. In the spot, the Campanda takes over the role of the always attentive helper: he hands over the vehicle key, hands a cool drink to a couple on the beach and puts a warm blanket over the shoulders of a woman at the camp fire.

“By the different scenes, we show how adventurous, exciting and family friendly a camping holiday is. I am delighted that the Campanda is supporting us as a friendly advertising figure, “says founder and managing director Chris Möller. Just like the company itself, the Panda has also set itself the task of making camping holidays a special experience.

“With this spot we want to address a broad target group and explain how our platform works. If you are planning a camping holiday in the future, you should immediately think of Campanda. In addition to the increased brand awareness, we also expect an increase in bookings already at the beginning of the year,” explains Rhode.

Friedrich Tromm, founder and CCO of Try No Agency explains the concept of the TV commercial: “It is particularly important for a young brand to build trust and sympathy. At Campanda, the name is program: the friendly Campanda bear is the face of the brand. Not only does it explain the new business model emotionally, it will become the nucleus of an integrated campaign long term. ”

Production and media buyings were financed independently by the startup. CMO Mathias Rhode and co-founder Frederik Fröhle even took over a small role in the commercial.
