When Harvest Films was approached by agency Carmichael Lynch to launch a multiplatform campaign "Mediocrity" for client Subaru, it was clear the experience would be anything but ordinary. The Mediocrity launch is a playful send-up of automotive advertising and a reflection of how the average consumer perceives car shopping.

The expansive campaign includes television and online commercials directed by Harvest Films' Baker Smith, and the agency produced website via Exoplis ( with online games and tongue-in-cheek purchase options. A Facebook page, Twitter feed, and YouTube channel played an integral role. The Carmichael Lynch media team was also able to partner with automotive sites such as AutoTrader, Cars Direct and Edmunds to integrate spotlight pages and reviews into their sites. These sites would then reveal those pages to anyone shopping for a sedan.
