With 4.8m views ‘Motherhood’ was the most viewed ad globally, helping to convert 191 pre-orders and delivering £2.5m of revenue.

"An assault on the familiar, the relentlessly bloody upscale tone of the average car ad…The Fiat 500L mum is right for us. In her photogenically haggard way, there’s something aspirational to her after all."
