LONDON, England  – Hyundai is delving into the minds of car-buyers with a series of humorous videos.

The videos, the second in a series comprising of four clips, were produced for
Hyundai by award-winning agency Red Bee.

IMAGE GALLERY: Hyundai car-buyers - Inner thoughts

Hyundai says: “The films are designed to explain key attributes of Hyundai’s latest product range in a fun and entertaining way – an innovative take on a traditional brochure format.

“In each the audience hears what a potential buyer is really thinking as a salesperson talks them through one of Hyundai’s models.”

The films, posted in April 2014, follow the journey of a ‘tries-too-hard-to-impress” father and son duo interested in purchasing a new ix35 (played by Bafta-nominated actor Neil Stuke and Elliot Speller-Gillott) and Kristin (Kimberley Nixon Fresh Meat) who falls for a cute i10… and the salesman.

'TREATED IT LIKE A SITCOM'

Stuke commented: “It’s great to see a car company looking at innovative ways to engage potential buyers through entertainment. I’d seen the first of these films with Darren Boyd and Anna Crilly and thought they were great – really funny.

"I'm very pleased to have been involved.”

Writer and director Ollie Parsons explained: “We treated it like a sitcom, not an ad, writing and producing it as you would any other TV comedy. This isn’t only about making the audience laugh, it's also about engaging them quickly with the story and establishing the characters.”

1 Hyundai i10 - There is definitely an attraction here

"Love is a mystery, it doesn't follow the rules and neither does Kristin. She likes what she sees and she sees what she wants. So when she wants two things at once, will she get the New Generation i10 and the guy?"
