Chrysler Brand's 2011 Super Bowl Commercial ‘Born of Fire' Wins Creative Arts Emmy Award
The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences awarded the 2010-2011 Creative Arts Primetime Emmy Awards for programs and individual achievements at the 63rd Emmy Awards presentation. An Emmy was awarded to the Chrysler brand's 2011 Super Bowl commercial 'Born of Fire.' The awards took place on Saturday, Sept 10 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
'The Chrysler Brand is thrilled to win a Creative Arts Emmy Award for our Super Bowl commercial, ‘Born of Fire,'' said Olivier Francois, Chief Marketing Officer, Chrysler Group LLC. 'Born of Fire was more than a commercial about the Chrysler 200, it was our anthem and signified the return of the Chrysler Brand and our Company. We are honored to be given this award and would like to share it with the wonderful people of Detroit who served as our inspiration and, of course, the hard-working employees of Chrysler Group LLC.'
Born of Fire debuted at the 2011 Super Bowl and was designed to generate a conversation about the Chrysler brand and the 2011 Chrysler 200. The two-minute commercial, which was also a Super Bowl first, ignited a spark throughout the Únited States, as many felt a connection to the attitude and work ethic portrayed in the scenes and narration. The spot reflects where the brand is headed and pays tribute to its industrial roots. While the commercial focused on Detroit, in many ways, it encapsulated the spirit of the country and the comeback of the Chrysler brand and Chrysler Group.
The Chrysler brand chose internationally known Detroiter, Eminem and his song 'Lose Yourself' because the lyrics speak to the ability to do anything we set our mind to and that failure is not an option. The Chrysler brand, the company and its employees have adopted the principle that failure is not an option.
Born of Fire also revealed the tagline for the brand, 'Imported from Detroit,' created to convey the message that one does not have to cross an ocean to obtain luxury – it's available right here and evident in the Chrysler brand product lineup.
The Chrysler brand introduced 'Imported from Detroit' merchandise on the brand's website (http://www.chrysler.com). The collection features an array of products with the 'Imported from Detroit' logo which represents the hardworking spirit captured and celebrated in the Chrysler brand's Super Bowl commercial. In keeping with the spirit in which the logo was created, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of 'Imported from Detroit' merchandise found on www.Chrysler.com will go to four Detroit-area charities.Source - Chrysler
