NFL Premieres ‘Get Ready to Celebrate’ Campaign Starring Andy Garcia and J.B. Smoove


The National Football League (NFL) premieres a new multi-platform ad campaign "Get Ready to Celebrate" to kick off the new season on Sunday Night Football's heated matchup between the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys on 9/16.

The campaign, created by Grey New York, hones in on the popularity and creativity of the touchdown celebrations sweeping the league. With the pressure on to shine, players reach out to high-powered celebrity coaches from Hollywood and elsewhere to polish up their end zone prowess.

In Sunday's debut spot, one unlikely coach, Andy Garcia, the Oscar-nominated actor from "The Godfather Part III," is enlisted by Toddy Gurley of the Los Angeles Rams. Garcia channels his inner tough guy, complete with mysterious burner phone, and provides unexpected musical advice for the running back's touchdown performance.

In a second spot, J.B. Smoove, the comedian best known for HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "SNL," teams up with Christian McCaffrey of the Carolina Panthers. In a fast-talking monologue he advises the running back to unleash his best Panther animal magnetism during the touchdown dance.

Sam Howard, Director of NFL Advertising, said, "Celebrations have become something our fans look forward to, something new to savor after a score."

New commercials will feature even more celebrity coaches helping players crack their celebrations as the season unfolds. The integrated campaign, part of a broader League and media effort focusing on the joy of touchdown celebrations, includes online video, social media, public relations and team activations as well as network television.
A teaser ad, already airing, is a light-hearted tribute to players who use their precious free time to up their celebration game. The spot features Jay Ajayi (Philadelphia Eagles), Christian McCaffrey (Carolina Panthers), Todd Gurley (Los Angeles Rams) and DeAndre Hopkins (Houston Texans). Their competitive spirit makes up for what they lack in dance skills.

Last season set the bar high for touchdown celebrations as immortalized by the NFL's "Dirty Dancing" parody starring Odell Beckham, Jr. and Eli Manning. The commercial, which aired on Super Bowl LII, became one of the big game's most famous commercials ever.

Twelve Challenges Perceptions of Insurance Marketing with New Co-Op Insurance Campaign: ‘For Life’s Adventures’



Co-op Insurance has launched a social media brand campaign created in partnership with award-winning creative agency, PSONA Twelve, titled ‘For Life’s Adventures’.

The campaign was designed to challenge the existing negative tone of many insurance adverts and instead celebrates the wonderful, positive adventures in life that insurance enables us to do.

The centrepiece of the advert is a unique branded podium featuring a button labelled ‘press for adventure’. The adverts show curious pedestrians walking towards the flashing sign before receiving cards with a suggested adventure on it: a little girl is encouraged to give a+ gift, a woman dances with a hula hoop, and a holiday-goer is challenged to pack a suitcase as quickly as possible.

The work advertises Co-op Insurance’s full range of services including Travel, Car, Pet, Life and Home, each scenario reflecting that the company is there to take care of customers as they embark on their life’s adventures, big and small.

Neame Ingram, Creative Director at PSONA Twelve, said: “When it comes to insurance, most brands typically sell it on price, prangs and peace of mind. We wanted to take a different approach that brought people’s minds back to fun and away from seeing buying insurance as mundane or complex.”

Chris Twigg, Head of Digital added: “We wanted PSONA Twelve to deliver a campaign that fit with the persona and voice of the wider Co-op Group: friendly, helpful, and community-focused. Their work has achieved this brilliantly and illustrates that insurance doesn’t have to be something to be afraid of.”

The campaign launches on the 18th April for one month across social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram Stories).

The podium that has been created will also be used at events throughout the UK, allowing Co-op Insurance to maximise value of the campaign.
