Jeep Portraits Ad Wins YouTube Adblitz Poll 2016!


The Jeep ad, ‘Portraits’, was a major success at the Superbowl.  It was a surprisingly quiet moment in ads that tend to raise the volume to prove a point.  For that reason, it was one of the stand-out ads in the sea of Superbowl ad madness.  It’s also earned it plenty of recognition, such as taking the top spot with the YouTube Adblitz 2016 results.

“Achieving the number one automotive spot in the YouTube Adblitz Poll the last five of six years is a remarkable achievement for FCA and a wonderful acknowledgement of our entire creative team’s efforts,” said Chief Marketing Officer at FCA Globa Olivier Francois.  “This work is above all things the product of FCA’s shared culture of leadership.  ‘Portraits’ speaks directly to how we are given the freedom to experiment and to challenge conventions.  The recognition that ‘Portraits’ has received from both viewers and those within the creative industry only serves to reinforce that we are on the right path.  Making a difference has been and always be our North Star.”

The ad had already been named Adweek’s number one Super Bowl spot.  It was appreciated by the editors for its restraint in what is typically an unhinged event.  When every other brand is trying to be loud and get noticed, it’s nice for someone to remember the power of subtly.

Take a look at the ad for another time and really appreciate the message Jeep is trying to send about the legacy of the company:

Jeep ‘Chips Away’ With the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2014-Jeep-Grand-Cherokee-SRT-front-01Chrysler is a notorious company for the quality of its ads.  They’ve put a fantastic and dramatic commercial together to promote the upcoming 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The ad, titled, ‘Chip Away’ features the same type of uplifting speech material most of Chrysler’s commercials are made up of.  This time around, the speech comes from Al Pacino’s character in Any Given Sunday.  It’s always a good choice to go with a football movie if you’re looking for inspiration.

Pacino preaches of the importance of fighting for every inch in life.  His words are put over a montage of different people all struggling to achieve.  Combined with a dramatic orchestrated score swelling at the perfect emotional moments, it’s clear that the ad company still understand how to send a message of inspiration.

Once the speech is over, a voice-over from a narrator chimes in to note how Jeep is fighting for those inches and chipping away to construct the best possible Jeep.  Take a look at the ad and you’ll see the trend of quality continue for one more time as well as seeing the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee in action.

Jeep Honors Our Troops With Super Bowl 2013 Ad

Jeep-Wrangler-Freedom-Edition-2012-Image-03-800I think it’s pretty much an unwritten rule that everyone knows there’s three parts to each Super Bowl that the public pays attention to.  First is the most obvious in the actual football game.  Second is the half-time show which, in this year’s case, was to see Beyoncé prove she does rules the world.  Last is for the commercials.  It’s gotten pretty ridiculous the past few years with most of them being leaked to the web days prior to the big game.  That still doesn’t stop everyone from picking and choosing the ad that stood out the most to them.

Chrysler has enjoyed the spotlight the morning after the Super Bowl as they tend to be the one chosen for favorite commercial.  Last year had the infamous Clint Eastwood and his gravelly voice telling America that it’s just half-time for the country.  Before that was Eminem supporting the Built in Detroit series of commercials that would go on to be a huge hit.  This year everyone was talking about Jeep.

The commercial named Whole Again was narrated by the one and only Oprah Winfrey.  Combined with majestic images of our service men and women returning home from war and a sweeping, dramatic score; There’s definitely an expression of admiration for the whole of the United states, both civilians and those who fight to protect them.  Like the previous commercials, Whole Again is able to strike an emotional chord to those who watch and the audience is responding very positively.

The story doesn’t end there, however.  The ad highlighted Operation SAFE return for US personnel coming home after active duty overseas.   Jeep will be donating up to $300,000 to the USO (United Services Organization) as well as part of the campaign.

You can join in on this effort.  By tweeting #joinOSR on Twitter, visiting Yahoo’s homepage, or by going to Jeep Operation SAFE Return’s website, Jeep will be donating $1 to a fund that will give our returning troops assistance with employment and incentives to purchase new cars.  Jeep will also donate to this charity based on vehicles sold.  That’s $250 for Jeep Wrangler, Wrangler Unlimited, and the Jeep Patriot Freedom Edition.

Make sure you follow up with any one of those ways to give back to those who have given so much.  They deserve all the support they can get from a grateful country.  Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge salutes our troops on the front lines and off.
