New Campaign Spotlights Panasonic’s Consumer, Business and Industrial Solutions Under “Engineering A Better World For You” Theme
The multi-faceted campaign will showcase a series of print, on-line advertising and TV commercials featuring the theme, “Just Another Way We’re Engineering a Better World for You.” The combined marketing effort, which will commence July 27, represents Panasonic’s highest advertising investment in a sports event in its history. At the center of the campaign are three TV commercials – 30- and 60-second spots -- including an anthemic commercial highlighting the brand’s extensive range of products and solutions for consumers and business, as well as commercials spotlighting Panasonic’s Smart VIERA HDTVs and ToughpadR products featuring US Women’s National Soccer Team players Alex Morgan and Abby Wambach respectively.
The anthemic commercial will spotlight both products the company is well known for, including VIERA flat-panel internet and 3D-enabled TV’s, and ToughbookR computers, as well as its Lithium Ion batteries to power electric and hybrid vehicles, in-flight entertainment and communications systems and energy-saving solar panel arrays at stadiums and other sports centers. It also profiles an entire planned eco-smart community called Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town, which Panasonic is developing in Japan to demonstrate a model for sustainable living.
“Surprisingly, even today many people are not aware of the broad scope of the Panasonic products and solutions that touch literally every part of our daily lives,” said Betty Noonan, Vice President of Marketing and Brand Management, Panasonic Corporation of North America. “Panasonic’s founder, Konosuke Matsushita, was deeply committed to contributing to society and improving people’s lives. This is where our long-time brand promise ‘Ideas for Life’ comes from. The new campaign is designed to complement and be true to that legacy by communicating Panasonic’s intention to engineer ways for people to enjoy better and more sustainable lives around the world.”
The VIERA and Toughpad commercials from the campaign made their debuts earlier this month during select national programming including the recent US Olympic Trials on NBC. The theme of “just another way we are engineering a better world for you” will also be used in Panasonic’s consumer product and business solution branding communications moving forward. The shift in theme is part of the brand’s increasing emphasis on comprehensive solutions and sustainability.
Panasonic is a sponsor of USA Soccer and the US Women’s National Soccer Team.
