How does an iconic yet misunderstood luxury car company reignite its mojo and win back the hearts and minds of US drivers? By casting its newest sports car as a Villain, of course. Jaguar's "British Villains" campaign played off the insight that the best Hollywood Villains are played by Brits, and introduced Jaguar as the newest British Villain. An integrated campaign touted the idea that it's #GoodToBeBad and encouraged audiences to embrace their dark sides. Post campaign, Jaguar has a re-energized brand funnel, a renewed contemporary fan-base, and audiences asking for more villainy.
The Case study titled British Villains was done by Spark44 advertising agency for brand: Jaguar in United States. It was released in the Oct 2014.
