Convertible-Making PSAs
Colorado State Patrol Ad Reminds Drivers to Keep Their Heads

By: Katie Cordrey (Rockstar) Oct 20, 11

With a message that reads, “You can turn any car into a convertible. Tailgating a truck can turn any car into a convertible,” this Colorado State Patrol ad is designed for impact in order to make drivers more aware of the dangers of tailgating.

The 48-foot long Colorado State Patrol ad is 14-feet tall and features a panel section that looks like it was rolled back with a sardine can key. Bill Kinsey created the 3-D ripped-metal effect for Denver-based agency Amélie Company. Ultimately, it proves that shock value doesn’t have to be gruesome to be effective. Bold statements raise awareness with leveraged efficacy when those statements are delivered to the public via large formats such as billboards or building wrappers like the Colorado State Patrol ad.
