Lowe Campbell Ewald Promotes U.S. Navy with ‘Pin Map’

By Erik Oster 

Lowe Campbell Ewald promotes the U.S. Navy with a new spot entitled “Pin Map.”

The ad positions the Navy as working “Around the world, around the clock” in defense of America. It opens by showing a variety of locations and scenarios with a large red dot inserted into the landscape. Later, the dots are revealed to be pins on a map, a visualization of the travel-heavy role the Navy takes. Shots of  land, air and sea set to a dramatic score give the ad the feel of a cinematic or video game trailer, which shouldn’t come as a surprise given the target 18-24 demographic.


“Pin Map,” which will run in 15, 30 and 60 second versions, recently made its debut during the Winter X Games and will run on over twenty broadcast and cable networks beginning this week.
