OLX Autos, India’s leading player in the pre-owned automobile segment, today launched their latest brand campaign “OLXtraaa”. Conceptualised and created by Lowe Lintas, the campaign comprises of multiple films that depict real-life situations in an unconventional way to reiterate OLX Autos philosophy of providing ‘xtraaa’ to their customers.
Taking a fun and straightforward storytelling approach, all the films index on their deadpan humor and expressions of the characters.

This quirkiness along with upbeat music has been used as cues to further elevate the comical situations.
