this is so strange... I am a BMW rallye 3 user for a long time, the suit offers u so much more. with this visual u just explain how far i can go, but u can go there with all the other suits.
and you even don't touch what this product offers you on ur way.

The idea is easy to get if you think a little. Clothes hanger (clothes) that's shaped like a boomerang (adventure). Poor ad. I just think that with some product categories we don't need this much "originality". When it comes to clothing, you need to show the actual clothes! This is not going to make me purchase the latest BMW suit.

Apparently, we even have BMW "functional underwear" (rolls eyes).

I get what you are saying atb2005.

But - how many people here see a boomerang and think 'adventure'? A boomerang has nothing to do with adventure for me - when I see a boomerang I think 'Australia, Outback, Aborigines'. When I think of an adventure I think of a compass, etc.

Furthermore, I wasn't even aware that BMW made clothes?

For me, a boomerang has nothing to do with adventure.
And if you ask me what carbrand I would associate with boomerangs, it would be Citroën because of the logos.

You are right boomerang = Australia. And when you think of Australia, you don't think of adventure?!? I was not defending the campaign. I too think it's poorly conceptualized. But it makes SOME sense.. Finally, I too didn't know that BMW makes gear. LandRover does too!

I've had to make a reserch on internet to understand what BMW Rallye 3 suit it was... no product, no brand, too much far the idea behind...sorry I agree with Manola: a good occasion lost!

The thing with boomerangs is that they have a unique aerodynamic shape which enables it to fly in a circle when it's thrown.
In other words, it comes back to you when you throw it. This ad misses the point of the boomerang.

I belive that the main idea is that, with bmw motorcycles and gear, you are able to reach any part of the world. You can bring suveniers from different places like a boomerang that was offered by a tribe chief, and you, creatively use it to hang your bmw rallye suite...
