Key results




The opportunity

@DCComics superheroes are famed for their courage and intrepidity, so it’s no surprise that sporty auto brand @JeepMiddleEast chose to affiliate itself with the recent launch of the @BatmanvSuperman movie. @JeepMiddleEast saw the film release as an opportunity to engage with superhero fans across the region and increase awareness of the new Renegade model.

The strategy

@JeepMiddleEast used First View to add a Promoted Video to the top ad slot in users’ timelines. The video featured footage of Batman (@BenAffleck) driving the Jeep Renegade and invited users to vote for their favorite superhero via a Conversational Video Card with the hashtag #BattleoftheRenegades. The brand also generated pre-release excitement by creating a Flock to Unlock campaign, which encouraged fans to collectively generate 1,000 Retweets to ‘unlock’ free movie tickets.
