Rockstar licensing gurus Creative License handled celebrity talent procurement & music licensing for GM’s Buick for their first ever spot in the Super Bowl. The spot features New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and actress-model Emily Ratajkowski from the thriller Gone Girl, promoting Buick’s new Cascada, the brand’s first convertible in a quarter-century that is due in showrooms in a matter of weeks. The company says the car, with a sculpted look and wide, athletic stance, will continue its effort to change the perception of Buick.
CL also handled music + celeb duties for a digital-only campaign for the Cascada starring Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Ellie Kemper. The campaign is a series of ad vignettes and a YouTube film that features Kemper in a series of lighthearted, humorous scenarios. Also, a “between the scenes” short shows Kemper attending a yoga class and sharing tips on how she stays camera- and convertible-ready.
