Honda and Music Combine for the Ultimate Summer Clearance Event
Words by Honda USA
Honda is celebrating its annual Summer Clearance Event with the debut of six new music-themed videos that bring to life the love-at-first-sight feeling that happens when someone finds their dream ride—a new Accord, Civic, CR-V, Fit or Odyssey. Dubbed “Now Is the Moment,” the integrated campaign will begin to air on TV, as well as in digital and social media placements, along with print, radio and fun in-dealership materials.
A celebration of America’s love for a diverse array of musical styles and genres, each execution involves a fantasy sequence with a hit song interpreted by a different singing group. The Accord video features sharp, cherry-suited rockers singing a doo-wop version of a top pop song. The Civic video creates a classic 1960s girl group to interpret a hit ballad. For the CR-V and Fit videos, the soul of gospel-singing idols re-imagines an ’80s masterpiece. The Odyssey video features a children’s choir in America’s most popular minivan singing a charming rendition of a well-known rocker tune. And finally, a multi-vehicle video lifts viewers with an angelic boy group clad in white rising above the floor. The Honda Summer Clearance campaign video package featuring four “Now is the Moment” spots can be viewed at www.honda.us/SummerClearance.
“This eye-catching campaign celebrates that moment when a buyer falls for a new Honda, and the Honda brand begins an enduring connection with the customer,” said Susie Rossick, Assistant Vice President of Marketing at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Ultimately, our goal is to break through the car sales-event clutter and remind people that summer is the best time to get a great deal on a Honda.”
