Ad Features the Brand’s Newest Underwear Innovation, Jockey® staycool
Kenosha, Wis. (March 30, 2011) /PRNewswire/ — Jockey International, Inc. announces the launch of their new television spot featuring pro quarterback, Heisman trophy winner and Jockey spokesman, Tim Tebow. Tebow is the face of Jockey® staycool, Jockey’s newest collection of innovative underwear, designed to help regulate skin temperature and keep you cool and comfortable.
The commercial opens with Tim Tebow walking down a city sidewalk on a sweltering day. As he walks, cooling imagery appears on Tim’s shirt to illustrate how the technologically-advanced Jockey® staycool collection keeps Tim cool on even the hottest days. The spot is scheduled to air on April 4, and will run through August on national cable, DRTV and DISH/DirecTV networks including, ESPN, E!, CNN, Spike, Discovery and more. The ad was created by Arcade Creative Group and directed and produced by Motion Theory.
“The commercial is part of a larger integrated campaign to support Jockey® staycool, and reinforce our commitment to offering cutting-edge products to our customers,” said Jockey Chief Marketing Officer Dustin Cohn. “Tim Tebow’s passion for innovation both on and off the field aligns completely with the Jockey® staycool brand.”
Jockey® staycool will also be supported with online and print buys, in-store elements and event sponsorships, in addition to several other marketing promotions throughout the year.
The new product line blends fashion and innovation, and features Outlast® technology that absorbs, stores and releases excess heat to maintain your optimal skin temperature. Originally developed for NASA, Outlast® technology has provided temperature regulation for more than 20 years and is a certified space technology. Jockey is the first U.S. company to offer underwear treated with Outlast® technology with the launch of Jockey® staycool.
