In Argentina, we say "gol" when the ball crosses the line.
We say "es un gol" (it's a goal) when some positive thing happens when we don't expect it.
And also, in this country, the most sold car model name is "Gol". The Volkswagen Gol.
But its main consumers –the young people– have a specific perception: the VW Gol is a 'value-for-money' car; it's not a trendy vehicle.
Volkswagen had to launch the next generation of the model in Argentina and wanted to refresh the product image. They wished a funny and desirable Gol.
But, who are this 'young people'?
They're 24-hours online and they're always looking for breaking themes and trends that appears every day in Facebook and Twitter.
So, we decided communicate the new model inviting people to share their "goals" of everyday in the social media, generating conversations around the brand name. We create "Es un Gol".
