Justin Timberlake Stars in ‘Priceless Surprises’ for MasterCard During Grammys

If you were watching the Grammys last night, you might have caught this spot launching Mastercard’s “Priceless Surprises” campaign. The 45 second ad features Grammy-nominee Justin Timberlake surprising a fan by showing up at her door to hang out.

A 30: teaser for the spot rolled out last Friday, debuting the new campaign, ending with Justin ringing one lucky fan’s doorbell. The new spot picks up where the teaser left off, recycling some of the audio from the teaser about how Timberlake is excited about sharing a few moments with a fan. The “Priceless Surprises” recipient reacts about how you’d expect, shouting “Holy fuck!” after opening the door. Timberlake spends some time with his fan, even jamming out with her for a bit while she plays guitar. Obviously, Mastercard couldn’t have picked a more appropriate time to launch this campaign.

“Pricelss Surprises” will continue to roll out as an integrated campaign featuring “social, print, radio, television and digital platforms to inspire cardholders to give, get and share #PricelessSurprises.” Timberlake will stick around to surprise Mastercard holders who use the #PricelessSurprises hashtag, spending a day with a few more lucky winners. Cardholders will be automatically entered for a chance to win a slew of other, lesser prizes, such as trips and concert tickets, when using their Mastercard or tweeting with the #PricelessSurprises hashtag as well. Stick around for the teaser spot after the jump.
