If you get your automotive news online you’re probably familiar with the new ad campaign for the [car brand name] [vehicle name] starring [famous comedian] in his character, [fictional newscaster], from [hit movie name], the sequel to which will be released later this year.
Publicity for the ad campaign says that [famous comedian] was so enthused at the creative comedic opportunities presented that he ended up ad-libbing dozens of commercial spots. That publicity was apparently successful because now the publicity campaign about the cross promotional ad campaign has announced that in a little more than a week since the ads were released on YouTube, over 2.7 million people have seen them. That figure doesn’t include those who have seen the [fictional newscaster] [vehicle name] ads on television. [Automaker headquartered in the Detroit area] is one of the major advertisers during Major League Baseball’s postseason playoffs.
The ad campaign has certainly been successful at getting the name of the [brand name] [vehicle name] out in front of the public. It’s possibly been even more successful at getting the names of [fictional newscaster], [famous comedian] and [movie sequel title] publicized. I’m sure that everyone involved with the new [vehicle name] ads are pleased with all the buzz. Next month, when the October sales reports are issued, we’ll know if that buzz translates to more [vehicle name]s getting sold.
