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.

      RALEIGH, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Advance Auto Parts (NYSE: AAP), a leading automotive aftermarket parts provider, the official auto parts retailer of NASCAR, and official partners of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES and Indianapolis Motor Speedway, is kicking off the summer travel season by offering its Speed Perks loyalty rewards members the chance to win a bucket-list motorsports experience to “Do the Double.”
      This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:  link hidden, please login to view
      On May 26, Advance will send one winner and their guest on a free VIP experience to attend the 108th running of the famed Indianapolis 500 before traveling to North Carolina to watch the Coca-Cola 600, one of NASCAR’s crown jewel events, held at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Fans can enter for their chance to Do the Double from May 1-12 at  link hidden, please login to view. Race fans can enter up to three times per day during the program.
      To be eligible to win, entrants must be members of Advance’s Speed Perks loyalty rewards program. Speed Perks is free to join, and upon signing up, new members will receive $5 off their first in-store or online purchase of $20 or more. Race fans can sign up for Speed Perks at  link hidden, please login to view.
      For race car drivers, doing the double involves competing in both the Indianapolis 500 and Coca-Cola 600 in the same day. It is one of the most challenging feats for any race car driver to attempt, given the significant differences between open-wheeled INDYCAR SERIES cars and NASCAR stock cars. In fact, only four drivers have completed the double since 1994.
      This includes three-time NASCAR Cup Series™ champion Tony Stewart, who won the 1997 INDYCAR SERIES title prior to beginning his hall-of-fame NASCAR career. Stewart is partnering with Advance on  link hidden, please login to view and is the perfect ambassador for the program.
      Stewart has done the double twice. His first attempt came in 1999 when he became the first driver to complete both races in the same day, finishing ninth and fourth, respectively, in the Indianapolis 500 and Coca-Cola 600, driving a total of 1,090 miles.
      Stewart repeated this feat in 2001 and bettered his mark from 1999. He finished on the lead lap in sixth at the Indianapolis 500 before jetting off to Charlotte for the Coca-Cola 600. He improved that finish as well, coming home third in the 600-miler. Stewart completed all 1,100 miles – breaking his own record for most racing miles driven in a single day.
      “This is the chance of a lifetime for a fan to also complete the double by having a front-row seat at the Indianapolis 500 and Coca-Cola 600,” Stewart said. “Advance Auto Parts has put together a fantastic program that is truly unique. Doing the double is history in the making and thanks to Advance, a fan and their guest will get to experience it all in real time. They’ll both be able to say, ‘I was there.’”
      “Historically, doing the double has been a journey reserved for only the world’s most talented and dedicated race car drivers, like Advance brand partner Tony Stewart,” said Junior Word, Advance’s executive vice president, U.S. stores. “Now, one lucky Speed Perks member will have the unique opportunity to ‘get in the driver’s seat’ to experience their own version of the double. Advance is thrilled to work alongside our partners at NASCAR, INDYCAR and Indianapolis Motor Speedway to give two race fans the memory of a lifetime.”

      As he celebrated 30 years as a professional drag racer, Funny Car superstar Ron Capps was looking forward to a long race day on Sunday at the NHRA Arizona Nationals at Firebird Motorsports Park. The three-time world champion entered eliminations in the No. 11 position on the ladder but made an early exit against Blake Alexander in the first round of competition. 
      Aboard his brand-new link hidden, please login to view Toyota GR Supra, Capps battled to gain a favorable spot on the ladder among a stacked Funny Car field. Typically, teams at this elite level within the sport will go through several test sessions with a new car before throwing it into the intensity of NHRA Mission Foods Drag Racing Series competition, so Capps, crew chief Dean ‘Guido’ Antonelli, and the Ron Capps Motorsports team knew that they would experience some trial and error. His first qualifying effort went up in a puff of smoke, but his second attempt showed more promise as he powered to the finish line with a run of 4.020 seconds at 310.34 MPH. A loss of traction in the third qualifying round forced Capps to shut off early, marking the first time in 20 events for him to begin eliminations from the bottom half of the field. 
      “Building into the race we had the excitement of the 30 years. Having fans come up throughout the weekend and saying, ‘Happy Anniversary’ and things like that, it was fun,” began Capps as he recalled his weekend. “I always try to keep our NAPA fans updated as much as we can about what goes on with our team. We brought out a new chassis. It’s something we built in the off-season. Rather than testing first, we decided to do it in race conditions and that’s hard to do. But it reminds me a lot of our NAPA Auto Care people because I love this process of trying to take something and be the best with something so new. It’s like pulling your car into an AutoCare Center, you have a dash light blinking and technicians can attack that problem, and they don’t just snap their fingers and fix it. It’s a process, especially with today’s cars, as they try to figure out what the problem is. I love watching my NAPA Auto Care guys do the same thing. The car didn’t go down the track in the first run and to watch how many hours they put in trying to figure things out, it was really impressive.”
      As Capps lined up against No. 6 qualifier Alexander, hopes were high as he has defeated Alexander seven out of the eight times they’ve faced each other in the first round of eliminations. Despite getting the starting line advantage, Capps ultimately came up short. Both cars lost traction early in the race resulting in a bit of a pedal fest to the stripe, but Alexander was able to get there first.
      “There’s an upside and a downside to bringing a new chassis out at a race. It’s a gutsy move. But a couple of races down the road, I know that we are going to be much better because of it. And that’s also part of me having the utmost confidence in Guido and our NAPA Auto Care team. We didn’t qualify in the top half of the field, so we didn’t have lane choice. As we sat in the staging lanes, seeing dragsters winning only in the left lane made me pretty nervous and sure enough we got put in the right lane. That’s part of not qualifying in the top half. We still felt like we could beat them and that’s the confidence we had going up there. But it just wouldn’t hold, and we lost traction. I feel like I could have done a better job pedaling it. I should win those races, but we didn’t. But I feel like we’re going to have a great car for Vegas.”
      Capps is currently fifth in the NHRA Mission Foods Drag Racing Series points as he heads to the next stop on the tour, the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, April 12-14, where he is a six time winner at the facility.
      Start / Finish: No. 11 / def. in first round
      Points Standing / Total: No. 5 / 170 pts.
      Next Race: April 12 – 14, Las Vegas, NHRA Four-Wide Nationals
