Zambezi and Autotrader have rolled out 'Shop All the Cars,' an advertising blitz with national broadcast and a 360-degree Times Square Spectacular.

The campaign’s core creative execution is a :30 broadcast spot that features a visceral mash-up of faux car commercials from a variety of brands. The campaign features the new tagline: “If you can’t find it here, you won’t find it anywhere.” The key insight is that Autotrader has all the cars so you can find the one that best fits your needs.

Digitally, the campaign features interactive Facebook Canvas ads in endless swipeable video loops, pre-roll spots (:30s and :15s with :07s for Hulu), home page takeovers, custom partnerships and digital banners. Outdoor executions will roll out in September with billboards in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami and an awesome Times Square Spectacular across a main screen, side screens, skyscraper boards and street level boards. Print ads will appear in Men’s Journal and ESPN.
