Goodby Silverstein & Partners: Tostitos 'Get Together Already'

Agency: Goodby Silverstein & Partners
Client: Tostitos
Date: March 2018
Chip brand Tostitos has enlisted leather-jacked action star Jean-Claude Van Damme to help bring friends together, so he doesn’t have to replace your friends at gatherings.
The campaign encourages people to get together throughout the year and Van Damme is the catalyst for the new tagline for the brand, “Get Together Already.”  
In a series of spots by Goodby Silverstein & Partners, Van Damme humorously offers advice on the importance of getting together with your friends. Because if you don’t, he says, they might replace you with someone else. Someone cooler, more inspiring and way more muscular. Like Jean-Claude Van Damme. So, he essentially commands people to get together, or they might get “Van Dammed.”
Van Damme is also seen in short 6- and 15-second spots, promoting the ease of having Tostitos products at parties where friends gather, even calling the signature corn chip ‘friendchips’.

MullenLowe: JetBlue Card 'Flip the Forecast'

Agency: MullenLowe
Client: JetBlue Card
Date: March 2018
JetBlue wants people to tell the airline, through an Instagram video, why they need to get to a place where the forecast is different from their current one. Using the hashtag #FlipTheForecast, potential travelers are tasked to create a video telling JetBlue Card which city they live in and why they need to flip their forecast. It could be someone in Massachusetts longing to get away from the cold, or someone in Arizona eager to build a snowman. It just needs to be a different climate. Winners of the contest will get two roundtrip tickets on JetBlue.
To promote the contest, which ends March 18, JetBlue parked branded Airstream trailers in two drastically different locales, Boston and San Diego, connecting customers at each destination through a livestream video experience.
Participants on both ends had a chance to win a pair of roundtrip tickets to the opposite location. The catch was that to successfully ‘Flip the Forecast’ each person had to convince the other and agree to swap locations with the other.

Y&R Group: United States Navy 'Test and Audition'

Agency: Y&R Group
Client: United States Navy
Date: March 2018
Following the soft launch of their rebrand at the Army / Navy game, the full recruitment campaign for the US Navy has launched on CBS Sports with a full March Madness buy. As the Navy seeks to reach a new generation of recruits, the two new films showcase the breadth and depth of opportunity that the Navy offers.
Each film stars actual sailors, and the voiceovers are done by members of the Navy in order to truly make this campaign be the voice of the brand. The campaign is an opportunity for the Navy to reach Centennials as they enter recruitment-eligible age -- to build awareness of the brand, to evolve perception of the Navy’s purpose, to define what sets the Navy apart from other branches, and to demonstrate the wide range of career opportunities they offer.
In order to connect with Gen Z, the recruit films will be promoted across digital platforms and will include media spend on Hulu, ESPN, TBS, FX, FOX and TNT among others.

The Martin Agency: Geico 'Karate'

Agency: The Martin Agency
Client: Geico
Date: March 2018
The stress of moving can lead to interesting ways of relieving frustration, or so that's the concept of a new spot for Geico.
The ad, by the Martin Agency, is part of a new campaign by the insurance company called 'Get to Know Geico', which features its homeowners insurance products rather than its usual auto insurance push.
In the spot titled 'Karate,' a middle aged couple is seen in their front yard. The wife places logs on a stump while her wiry, sweater-vested husband effortlessly splits the logs barehanded. A neighbor then cycles up in his recumbent bike, asking if the couple is OK. They announce that they are about to move and that karate helps with stress relief.
The neighbor assures that at least the insurance process will be a non stressor for them, as Geico homeowners insurance is easy and helpful. The couple then nonchalantly breaks through their walls to make the call to the insurance provider.
