Project hardware store HORNBACH released its spring campaign from agency Heimat Berlin--the centerpiece of which is this film directed by Swedish collective Traktor via Stink Berlin.

Titled “Unleashed,” this madcap two-minute-plus commercial shows what can happen if you don’t look after your garden in spring: It will simply find its own way to the nearest HORNBACH store--even if it must steal your car to get there. Not surprisingly, chaos ensues, including illegal car races and vomiting bushes. 

With the slogan “Come to HORNBACH. Before your garden does,” the campaign will be visible on all channels, from OOH to social media. It’s launching with a handful of six-second long complementary trailers referring to the film in its full length on digital channels. The long version of 2:14 minutes will be shown on regular TV, along with the 30- and 45-second adverts. Airing, for example, during the night of the Oscars, at half-time of international sports matches, and naturally at the cinema.
