Relevancy. All of us in the automotive industry have heard about the importance of relevancy in our direct marketing efforts, almost to the point of ad nauseam, right? (Admittedly, I’m guilty as charged.) However, this past weekend during “the biggest show on earth” we were all reminded that relevancy is equally important in the traditional marketing world…specifically the commercial.
Sure, most of us were easily entertained by the sentimental score of Star Wars and the cute pint-sized Darth Vader who tried endlessly to use the Force around his house, finally experiencing success when he starts his family’s VW Passat engine. Others found themselves chuckling at a pug unmercifully taunted by a man holding a bag of Doritos or the dog sitter who has the dogs serve beer at the house party. But there was one particular commercial that generated a lot of Super Bowl talk, both during the game and on Monday morning.
"Imported from Detroit” by Chrysler was, according to Brand Bowl, the commercial that generated the most buzz this year, even though it didn’t score as high as many of the other ads in the USA Today Super Bowl Ad Meter. So, why did Chrysler, with the help of Eminem, garnish such attention? Relevancy!
