      • Harley-Davidson

1casUGa3_400x400Harley-Davidson has relased its new campaign featuring real riders hanging out in drainage viaducts, doing donuts and wheelies, jumps, ice racing, and dirt racing on Street 750 motorcycles.The new effort includes TV, print ads, online ads, and social media. The broad theme, evoked by the #RollYourOwn social link, is that not only are H-D riders different, but what they do on their bikes is not what you think. The 60-second launch ad shows, among other things, footage of Street 750 dirt and ice racing during the winter and summer ESPN X Games. The ad has double-entendre headlines and Twitter links for each piece of footage: “Man Cave” for the guys in the viaducts; “Fast Tracker” for a racing-tuned Street; “Ice Carving” for the footage of the X Games ice racer; “Hang Over” for a guy doing jumps; and “Morning Donut” for a guy doing donut spins; and black market for what he spelled out on the pavement, US$99, the monthly nut for a Street 750. The ads were co-developed and shot by Minneapolis-based Wolfes LLC. The two TV spots broke March 4 and will continue to air on NCAA Men’s Basketball, as well as on theCHIVE and Also as part of the campaign, fans and riders are encouraged to share their “Roll Your Own” experiences across Harley-Davidson’s social channels using the #RollYourOwn tag-line.Harley-Davidson also is readying another campaign with partner Marvel, around the forthcoming “Avengers, Age Of Ultron,” which kicks off March 6.

      • Modelo Especial

LOGO_MODELO_2__400x400Modelo Especial, one of the fast-growing beer brand in America, will soon break its first national English-language campaign as it seeks to grow beyond its loyal base of Hispanic drinkers.The campaign, which includes two TV ads, continues a tagline the brand has had in place for a while that encourages consumers to “discover the Especial.” One TV spot describes the brew as a “high-quality, honest beer,” while touting its clear bottle that “shows off its character.”The goal is to introduce the brand to a wider audience. Modelo Especial edged out Heineken, which posted US$739 million in sales after 3% growth during the period.The move comes after Constellation late last year shifted creative ad duties on Modelo from Omnicom’s Goodby Silverstein & Partners to WPP’s Ogilvy & Mather, Chicago. But for the new TV ads, Constellation used a production company that made the ads based on a brand “manifesto” developed by Goodby and La Comunidad, which remains Modelo’s Hispanic agency. Horizon is Modelo’s Media Buying Agency.
