In a bold move blending cutting-edge technology with the allure of indie music, Honda has unveiled its latest marketing endeavor, the “Chasing Greatness” campaign. This innovative initiative puts the spotlight on Honda’s new line of TrailSport truck models, including the much-anticipated Ridgeline TrailSport truck.
Set to the rhythmic beats of Bishop Briggs’ latest track, “Triumph,” the campaign kicks off with a 30-second commercial that not only showcases the TrailSport line but also marks the debut of Briggs’ new song. The commercial is a feast for the senses, blending visual effects technology with Honda’s lineup of products, including the 2024 Ridgeline TrailSport, the 800 hp Baja Ridgeline race truck, and a series of championship-winning Honda dirt bikes. This creative approach is a nod to Honda’s rich history in off-roading and its commitment to innovation.
In addition to the initial broadcast, Honda plans to extend “Chasing Greatness” to social media later this month with a series of three 15-second videos. These videos, created using artificial intelligence (AI), promise to deliver fast-paced and engaging content, highlighting the TrailSport line’s prowess in navigating snowy landscapes and the challenging terrains of Baja, California. Honda’s embrace of AI in its marketing strategy is a testament to the growing importance of technology in the advertising industry.
The campaign’s reach is extensive, with plans to feature across broadcast television, cable, streaming platforms, and YouTube. Sports fans can expect to see “Chasing Greatness” during NFL, NBA, and NHL coverage. Moreover, the campaign will be integrated into Honda’s ongoing sponsorship of the popular “Halo” series on Paramount+, coinciding with the premiere of its second season in February.
This latest campaign is part of Honda’s broader strategy to connect with new audiences and stand out in a competitive market. Previously, the brand has engaged in unique marketing tactics such as interactive augmented reality murals in its “Keep Dreaming” campaign and the creation of a fully immersive world in Fortnite known as the “Hondaverse.”
By combining AI technology with the charm of indie music and a focus on adventurous, off-road experiences, Honda’s “Chasing Greatness” campaign is set to capture the imagination of consumers and reinforce the brand’s position as a leader in innovation and creativity in the automotive industry.
