Diehards Choose DieHard - New Advance Commercial for NFL


Recommended Posts

 

In 2020, Advance Auto Parts helped relaunch the DieHard car battery brand with an action-packed two-minute film starring Bruce Willis, which reignited interest in the brand.

While the latest DieHard campaign might not have the star power or nostalgia of that ad, Advance Auto Parts is launching the next phase in its ongoing support of the DieHard brand with a spot meant to capture the energy of the battery. The new work, which will debut during CBS’ coverage of the NFL Playoffs on January 22, evolves the messaging by focusing on the brand’s core attributes of reliability, durability and power.

The message will be brought to life in a series of videos that showcase the people who choose DieHard batteries and the connection between them. The first spot shows a man bringing a DieHard battery to the Advance Auto Parts counter, then cuts to a stadium tunnel, where a pair of football shoulder pads are being charged by the battery. A player dons the pads and is energized to blast a tackling dummy across the field. As the voice over states, “Imagine if everything had the reliability, durability and power of DieHard.”

“Our new ‘Diehards Choose DieHard’ campaign celebrates what it means to be a diehard, and through creative storytelling, the campaign will connect those who have a diehard spirit with the core brand equities of DieHard batteries. The campaign will continue building DieHard brand awareness and preference and will reinforce Advance Auto Parts as the home of DieHard,” Allison Bubar, Advance Auto Parts svp, marketing and DIY strategy said in a statement.

The videos will run both online and off, supported by digital banners and social media. The campaign was created by The Marketing Arm, the creative agency partner for Advance Auto Parts.

“Since DieHards are hidden under the hood when in use, we wanted to find a compelling way to pull the battery out of the engine block and see it in action. ‘Diehards Choose DieHard’ takes a metaphorical approach, but once the ‘charged’ object is in hand, the demonstration of a DieHard battery’s reliability, durability and power is as literal as it gets,” Harris Wilkinson, The Marketing Arm’s chief creative officer said in a statement.

      In April, Advance Auto Parts opened a new store in Grand Chute, Wisconsin. It didn’t take long for the store to make an impact in the local community.
      Last week, the Outagamie County Sheriff’s Office announced a unique program aiming to improve vehicle safety. During the store’s grand opening on May 5, Advance presented $2,500 worth of gift cards to the sheriff’s office,

      Schaeffler is launching a range of aftermarket bearings, seals and housings for agricultural equipment and machinery. 
      Schaeffler’s comprehensive line of OE-quality bearings are specifically engineered to the precise performance parameters of agricultural applications, including tractors, harvesters and tillage machines.
      Reliable and dependable bearing solutions are critical in minimizing equipment downtime. Schaeffler’s heavy-duty bearings are designed to support the constant vibrations and high shock loads of agricultural machinery. 
      The bearings feature a unique corrosion-protection system – Schaeffler’s Corrotect coating – that facilitates reliable operation in every environment and helps increase the operating life of heavy equipment and machinery, according to the company. The three-piece-seal concept retains the high-quality grease and helps prevent contamination and moisture from reaching the interior of the bearing.
      Schaeffler is further expanding its product line with metric-sized bearings and is providing both metric and imperial-sized bearings for agricultural applications in North America. Equipment owners and operators now can choose from more than 200 easy-to-mount options for a diameter range of 10 to 120 mm. The new metric offering compliments Schaeffler’s existing line of imperial-sized bearings, which already includes more than 400 SKUs.  
      Aftermarket bearings for agricultural applications include radial-insert ball bearings and housing units; sealed deep-groove ball bearings and angular-contact ball bearings; tapered roller bearings; and bearings with hexagonal and square bores. 
      For more information on the product line and technical specifications, please download the
