What if your test drive turned into a freestyle rap performance? That’s exactly what happens in Mitsubishi’s latest 'Freestyle Test Drive' campaign for the all-new 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross by creative agency, BSSP.

With so many new and fresh features, it takes more than your average salesperson to do them justice in one standard test drive. The spot features everyday customers at a Mitsubishi car dealership. Approached by Harry Mack disguised as a dealer, the customers agree to take the Eclipse Cross out for a joy ride. Mack decides to turn on the music, and all of a sudden the drivers are in for a total surprise when their supposed ‘salesman’ impressively begins word-spitting through a laundry list of the car’s features.

The work is a continuation of the Eclipse Cross launch campaign, and ties into Mitsubishi’s historical association with music. The work will appear on social and digital properties.
