Biker Bee and Friends Swarm a City in Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey Ad

In search of a bottle

The Jack Daniel's biker bee is back in this new spot from Arnold in Boston, and this time he brought a whole swarm of friends to tear through a weirdly empty city to find a bottle of Tennessee Honey. The music is less bikery than last time, and I can't say the overall vibe is as effective, but it's short enough to still work. Kinda wish they had to weave through traffic or chase people off the sidewalk, though. The agency says the ad was "pre-released" on Twitter and Facebook and generated more than 10 million impressions before hitting TV. Credits below.
