New Balance Wants to Make ‘Runnovation’ a Thing, Gives it an ‘Anthem’

From Arnold Worldwide comes “Runnovation Anthem,” a spot for New Balance that depicts people running in different environments interspersed with cuts of what appear to be acts of science. There’s also a very loud musical number, which one would suppose is the titular anthem, despite not being very anthemic. The song is so utterly terrifying, in fact, that it’s easy to imagine all of these people running away from a masked pursuer who chases them while playing this song full-blast on a JVC Kaboom Box held above his or her head.

With an introduction to the idea of “Runnovation” (running + innovation for those playing at home) out of the way, the campaign will unfold into three different storylines across media platforms, with the first focusing on a grassroots fitness group called “November Project.” If you’re interested in watching some suburban white dudes run around outside and yell “fuck yeah” for a while, watch this video:

In this latest spot for the insurance brand, Rodgers does career day, and as you’d expect, he gets no respect, even from kids, for his multimillion-dollar profession. Is Rodgers the Rodney Dangerfield of the NFL? Well, whatever the case, his “Title Belt” touchdown move has forever been tainted thanks to this campaign, which albeit has been fairly amusing since its launch a year ago. Maybe now Rodgers can just focus on helping turn around the Packers’ season.  Credits after the jump.
