The Chrysler brand has launched a new multicultural marketing campaign for the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200, featuring acclaimed actor Gael García Bernal (Amores Perros, Y Tu Mamá También, The Motorcycle Diaries). The campaign, which debuted Wednesday, March 4, consists of four national television spots across U.S. Hispanic media – one :60 and three :30 commercials – and also includes digital and social initiatives. Key partners for the Chrysler brand include Univision and Telemundo, for which the brand will be a presenting sponsor of La Voz Kids, a show for family co-viewing in all of broadcast, regardless of language, on Telemundo. The campaign introduces Hispanic consumers to the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200, giving viewers a close-up view of the Chrysler brand’s class-leading advancements. The story is anchored on the message, "Why choose ordinary when you can have extraordinary?", and supported with “Un Modelo a Seguir” – a nuanced phrase that in Spanish conveys positive messages such as something that inspires and/or something to pay attention to or follow. (It translates literally to “A Model to Follow,” which in the spot refers as much to the Chrysler 200 as it does to Gael García Bernal).The Chrysler brand campaign was created in partnership with Lopez Negrete. Media buying and planning has been done by IPG Mediabrands. The first spot, “Kid, You’re Not Me,” can be viewed here:
- Enterprise Rent-a-Car
Enterprise Rent-a-Car just announced "Vamos Por Ti" (We'll Come For You) – its first-ever fully-dedicated Hispanic marketing campaign. "Vamos Por Ti" will come to life in TV, radio and digital advertisements, as well as in-store collateral. Advertisements will debut in six pilot markets in Texas and New Mexico, with potential to expand into additional markets later this year. PHD Media Network handles all media planning and buying duties on behalf of Enterprise, and for this campaign, the spot will be seen on Univision and Telemundo networks in six markets – Dallas/Ft. Worth, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, El Paso/Las Cruces and Albuquerque/Santa Fe. There are also digital buys on YouTube, Hulu Latino and Facebook. The campaign began March 2 and runs through April 12. In addition to "Vamos Por Ti," Enterprise is also debuting a new North American television ad that will launch next week on March 16 across primetime broadcast TV and digital, coinciding with some of the brand's heaviest media buy. The spot, called "Family Reunion," uses humor to communicate how often Enterprise employees go above and beyond for their customers. In this particular ad, a young woman asks Enterprise to pick her up from a family reunion, and then introduces family members to her "boyfriend" (a.k.a. the Enterprise employee) who willingly plays along. The "Vamos Por Ti" campaign was developed by Bromley and "Family Reunion" was developed by Cannonball Advertising and Promotion.
