Arnold Worldwide Launches ‘Sinatra Select’ for Jack Daniel’s

Arnold Worldwide is behind a new 2.3 million dollar campaign for Jack Daniel’s new “Sinatra Select,” a new product rolling out in select markets in anticipation of a June release nationally. Sinatra Select is a stronger make of whiskey (90 proof to Jack Daniel’s normal 80 proof) with “more oak and spice notes.” It will be rolled out in some of Ol’ Blue Eyes’ favorite haunts: New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Miami, and Las Vegas.

At the center of the campaign is the 30-second spot, “Frank The Man,” celebrating Frank Sinatra and his favorite drink. The spot ends with Sinatra’s “That’s the nectar of the gods, baby,” quote. Jack Daniel’s in an enviable position as the preferred drink of such a historical celebrity; the new product, and Arnold’s campaign, seem like a no-brainer. As you may remember, Sinatra got a shout out in Jack Daniel’s “Legend” spot from last year, so it was only a matter of time until he got the spotlight. The media buy for “Frank The Man” includes “ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live and NBC’s The Tonight Show as well as cable outlets including ESPN, FX, Discovery and Comedy Central so this should reach a wide array of eyeballs as the product rolls out in its select markets.

As you might expect, the premium whiskey is a bit more glamorous than Jack Daniel’s standard offering, and the price tag ($150) is indicative of that. Sinatra Select also comes with packaging that “includes a commemorative gift box and a booklet detailing Mr. Sinatra’s history with Jack,” so folks will be paying for more than just the whiskey itself. The timing behind this campaign and product rollout is deliberate, coming in anticipation of the 100th anniversary of Ol’ Blue Eyes’ birth on Dec. 15, 1915. Credits after the jump. Read more

Arnold, Jack Daniel’s Bring Back King Bee, This Time with a Swarm

Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey Whiskey has been repped by King Bee for a while now, with the insect always fiercely flying, always backed by rock and roll. In the latest spot, King Bee is followed by his swarm, representing the followers the brand has gained in the last year.

Pre-released on Twitter and Facebook, “Swarm” amassed over 10 million impressions before launching on TV. Though it was apparently carefully calibrated to get the right lighting and “a gritty feeling” (essential for any American whiskey brand), the spot’s not exactly rife with excitement or engagement. It works for exactly 30 seconds, though, and with the accompanying copywriting- “Like any good night out, things get interesting when there’s a swarm.” and “Fly straight. Drink responsibly,” King Bee and his crew get get an A for effort.

The Zac Brown Band is Jack Daniel’s Model of Responsible Drinking

From Arnold Worldwide comes a new campaign for Jack Daniel’s that lauds the seriousness of responsible drinking. And, who better to instruct America’s whiskey drinking public on the importance of togetherness and watching your friends’ backs than Georgia-based Grammy-winning country group, the Zac Brown Band? With beards like that, it’s fully believable that the band has some veteran experience with imbibing Tennessee bourbon.

As you might recall, Jack Daniel’s partnered with ZBB in August for an integrated campaign and tour dates that included some heavily sponsored sold-out tour dates. As part of the next phase of the campaign, ZBB is starring in two new TV spots for Jack, beginning with “Responsibility” (above). With the tagline “Protect Your Band,” ZBB calls for the watching over of one’s bros when leisurely ingesting liquor.

So, dear readers, when the upcoming weekend threatens to claim one of your own, remember the wise words of the Zac Brown Band, and leave no man behind. Credits and one more spot follow after the jump.
