Strategy and Execution

The C Is for Chrysler campaign's social strategy was to develop a cross-platform approach to drive engagement, further enhance brand and vehicle awareness and sustain attention on the Pacifica throughout the year.

We kicked off the campaign by creating a thematic driving force through a series of four narrative videos, Listen! Drive! Surprise!, which use a game-show storyline and character traits to introduce the Chrysler Pacifica and its award-winning features.

To expand on this initial narrative, we developed six standalone short-form videos that allowed us to provide flexible, dynamic content, incorporate celebrity talent, and engage our audience in a less feature-forward way.

From these 10 informative and entertaining videos, we generated hundreds of micro-content pieces, including cutdowns, GIFs, Instagram Stories, polls, multi-photo posts and stills. This micro-content was customized, repurposed and distributed across all our social channels and extended to cultural and holiday-themed posts.

Ultimately, Chrysler and Sesame Street united to create a world that allowed our favorite characters to experience the features and versatility of the Pacifica.


The C Is for Chrysler campaign resonated well with audiences across all ages, genders and channels, proving that the nostalgia angle worked:

•Ad recall for Chrysler Pacifica moved significantly by 12 points; Ad recall scores grew significantly among both genders and 25-54s.

•An uplift of 18 points was seen in association of Chrysler Pacifica with Sesame Street; Both genders and 25-44s exhibited a significant increase, contributing to the total lift.

•As of 12/14/17, the Chrysler Sesame Street content has generated 225M impressions, 510K engagements, and 27M video views.

•"Play Ball" is currently the most-viewed organic Facebook video post for the brand YTD (69K views vs. 9.5K brand channel average).

•The Dax Shepard "It's Electric" Video was the most engaging Organic video on Chrysler Twitter YTD (15.7K views VS. 1.7K brand channel average).

•On YouTube, Sesame Street videos make up 6 of the top 10 most-viewed Chrysler videos of all time.

•Press coverage for the partnership has generated over 108M earned media impressions, generating mass awareness for the campaign outside of our social channels.
