Torrance, CA – January 8, 2024: Honda has unveiled its thrilling new brand campaign, “Chasing Greatness,” to showcase its expanded TrailSport series – the most adventurous and off-road ready light trucks in the company’s history. The campaign spotlights the rugged capabilities of the Passport TrailSport, 7-passenger Pilot TrailSport, and the groundbreaking Ridgeline TrailSport. Designed for weekend adventurers, these models are engineered to traverse even the most challenging off-road terrains. This action-packed campaign also marks the debut of “Triumph,” a powerful new single by indie artist Bishop Briggs.
The “Chasing Greatness” campaign innovatively uses VFX technology to celebrate Honda’s rich legacy in adventure and off-road performance. The campaign vividly features the 800 hp Baja Ridgeline race truck and Honda’s championship-winning dirt bikes, artfully projected onto desert landscapes as the new 2024 Ridgeline TrailSport makes its way through stunning rock formations and dusty canyons.
A Musical Collaboration with Bishop Briggs
The launch of Honda’s TrailSport campaign coincides with the release of “Triumph” by Bishop Briggs, an indie singer-songwriter known for hits like “Wild Horses” and “River.” The new track’s theme and lyrics resonate with Honda’s continuous pursuit of innovation. Briggs, a Honda Pilot owner, adds a personal touch to this collaboration.
Extending the Campaign on Social Media
In mid-January, Honda will extend the “Chasing Greatness” campaign to its social media channels. This extension will feature three 15-second videos, utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) technology to showcase the Honda TrailSport line’s capabilities in the challenging terrains of Baja, California, and snowy conditions.
The campaign will have a significant presence across various platforms, including broadcast television, cable, streaming, and YouTube, especially during high-profile sports events like NFL, NBA, and NHL games. Additionally, the campaign will be featured in Honda’s ongoing sponsorship of the series Halo on Paramount+, aligning with the premiere of its second season in February.
