Jeep Teams Up With Now United for Latest Renegade Campaign
Jeep continued its streak of innovative partnerships, this time around partnering up with the world’s first global pop team, Now United. The brand announced that the latest collaboration is an effort to promote the popular Jeep Renegade vehicle via a series of digital and social media integrations, consisting mostly of music videos and live performances around the group’s “Come Together” theme.
Jeep’s announcement as a global partner for Now United comes hot off the heel’s of the brand’s “Groundhog Day” Super Bowl commercial starring Bill Murray. The collaboration with Now United us counting on the performers’ 40-million-plus fans across the world. Initially, Jeep only teased the campaign with Now United via its social media channels, only to culminate its joint effort with the release of the new Now United song “Come Together” — the video serves as a prolonged advertising campaign for the brand’s Renegade model. Once released, the new music video accumulated 1.8 million views (and counting) within the first 24 hours of posting.
The Now United campaign targets first-time auto buyers — makes sense that the entry-level Renegade model is the star — with the 15 group members who will offer real-time engagement on social media channels via YouTube shows, posts on Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok. Now United members will even wear branded Jeep uniforms on stage.
“The Jeep brand is unique in that it is truly a global automotive brand, one that is easily recognizable across every continent. Our fans and followers around the world understand that passion, authenticity and freedom drive the Jeep brand. Now United shares these same core attributes with us. As the band undertakes its summer tour with a first stop in Brazil, we look forward to a partnership with Simon Fuller that both represents and unites our fans in a way that only Jeep and Now United could make possible,” said Olivier Francois, Chief Marketing Officer, FCA.
Simon Fuller also chimed in, adding: “I am excited to be collaborating with Olivier Francois, who is a branding genius with an extraordinary innovative mind, and welcoming Jeep as a global partner of Now United. Jeep is such an iconic brand and we share their powerful spirit and sense of adventure. Jeep’s involvement in our Come Together video is the first of many pioneering things we plan to do together, which will empower new ways to collaborate and engage our fans around the world.”
