If you live outside NYC, it’s likely you’ve missed this ad. It’s a prime example of how to make a killer ad on the app.
Why does it work?
The voiceover is generated with AI (a huge library available on CapCut), it is weird, unexpected while simultaneously being relatable. Because, what’s a car ride without some of your favorite music playing?
It’s simple, yet effective leveraging a personable tone of voice. The text tells you all that you need to know and tells you twice by reading out what you can see on the screen – from the summer-appropriate promo code offer to visuals of a unique POV, the ad serves its purpose of hooking the audience.
