Over the past twelve months, Jaguar successfully introduced the acclaimed F-TYPE Coupe sports car with a campaign that was the brand’s biggest-ever marketing investment. It also marked Jaguar’s first appearance in the Super Bowl, debuting creative that boldly positioned Jaguar as the new British challenger in the luxury car market. The “British Villains” campaign that followed generated unprecedented levels of awareness, record web traffic and top creative accolades including being rated #1 by Twitter and NFL.com, beating out many long-established brands in the Super Bowl. It also generated the hashtag (#GoodToBeBad) that became the most used in social media by consumers of any automotive brand.
As a result of the “British Villains” campaign, and the general success of the Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe launch, consumer and media buzz for the brand is building with Jaguar increasingly considered a “brand on the move” in the luxury car market.
