Hyundai 'New Sonata' by Innocean USA

Follow the best-intentioned adventures of Hyundai Hank in a series of brief Vine videos promoting the car company's 2015 Sonata

Hyundai Motor America is having fun with a series of 6-second Vine videos featuring an erstwhile 3-D action figure named Hyundai Hank, who helps showcase features of the company's 2015 Sonata, such as its xenon headlights, rear backup assist and panoramic sunroof.

The Vine and Twitter campaign, part of the brand's overall "New Sonata" campaign, was created by Innocean USA's in-house social team, and the videos were shot in an old-school, stop-motion style.
