|Tagline||At a time when it’s easy to go overboard, Acura invites you to be smarter and over-save during the Season of Reason sales event.|
|Story|| Acura’s “Season of Reason” campaign returns for the third year featuring superstars Bette Midler and Gordon Ramsay. Developed by Acura’s agency of record, rp&, a division of RPA, the sales event campaign emphasizes the value of Acura for affluent but recession-fatigued shoppers. |
The spots, shot by The Perlorian Brothers, open with a holidaymaker making the well-intentioned announcement that they had hired celebrity talent to make for an extra-special holiday. In the spot featuring Gordon Ramsay, a woman brings the celebrity chef into her home to prepare a special holiday dinner only to find her buttoned-up family sitting in awkward silence as Ramsay chews out and fires his staff.
