Insights, Strategy & the Idea
100 million people watch the Super Bowl. This wasn’t a big enough stage for Chevrolet’s ambition. They tasked us with getting one billion eyeballs to change consideration of the brand.

Our strategy was to go beyond broadcast and own the entire Super Bowl context.

Insight 1—Super Bowl adrenaline ramps up during the NFC Game. It was the perfect platform to start the Chevy conversation.

Insight 2—Studying past Super Bowls uncovered the “Super Six”—a six-day period before and after the game when people are most interested and social about the game.

Insight 3—People are finally comfortable using all three screens to experience a single event. We’d need to leverage their desire for Super Bowl content across mobile, broadcast and digital each day along with their desire to be social.

Insight 4—Every other advertiser would be launching a commercial. We’d change the game to win consumer attention.

Creative Execution
We launched the Chevy Game Time app in the broadcast of the NFC Championship. Leading up to the Super Bowl, the app prereleased commercials to rack up our views and rewarded answering trivia questions with instant wins. Actions pushed to players’ social networks, drawing in more players.

Second, we used superstar comedian Rainn Wilson during the “Super Six.” Rainn burst onto the YouTube masthead, Facebook and Twitter, showcasing our commercials and encouraging sharing.

Third, on the morning of the broadcast, when others were launching commercials, we launched a music video—a partnership between OK Go and Chevy Sonic.

On game day, the app came alive: viewers interacted in real time with our commercials and the game for a chance to win Chevys. This distracted them from competitors’ ads and gave them a reason to watch our ads on three screens: first on TV, then in the app, then on YouTube.
