Our goal for the European introduction of Dodge was to get the world’s attention and hold it with a mysterious viral campaign that challenged the imagination while branding the car.
So we created the “RamRash”, an epidemic of unexplained red ram rashes suddenly spreading across Europe and causing its victims to violently head butt everything – from husbands to bathroom sinks to grandmothers.
The series of short films concentrates on the story and not on Dodge vehicles. However, Dodge was prominently integrated since the skin rash clearly resembled the Dodge ram head logo.

The short films got more than 90,000 hits in one day on YouTube and drove people to the RamRash website where they could test drive the car.
The sales results were so incredible that the campaign was expanded from Europe to Asia to the United States with a grand total of 80 countries.
