"'Born Makers' reminds us that it's not just dreaming big ideas but also having the ingenuity and commitment to make them happen. It's an homage to American innovation, serving as a reminder that you don't have to cross an ocean for a car you're proud to have in your driveway," said Olivier Francois, Chief Marketing Officer, Chrysler Group LLC. "The all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 embodies this ideal. It's a perfectly timed coming together of people, resources and spirit of the Chrysler brand."
The "Born Makers" commercials are narrated by Kevin Yon (the voice behind the Chrysler brand's "Born of Fire" commercial that debuted during Super Bowl XLV) and features Detroit-born artist/singer MoZella performing the vocals behind Bob Dylan's "Things Have Changed" track.
The commercial's visuals include footage of Chrysler Group's Sterling Heights (Mich.) Assembly Plant (SHAP), and its employees. The all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 is designed, engineered and built with pride in Michigan. With a major investment of more than $1 billion, Chrysler Group's Sterling Heights (Mich.) Assembly Plant (SHAP), once slated for closure, sports an all-new paint shop using leading-edge technology, a new, fully robotic body shop and an upgraded assembly area, setting the stage for the world-class craftsmanship found in the all-new 200. The commercial ends with the "America's Import" tagline.
Script (:60-second spot):
What's a Born Maker made from?
From callused hands…
from the shoulders of giants.
From small steps.
And giant leaps.
And sharp minds.
From steel resolve.
From blood, sweat…and gears.
All the things that make a Born Maker…made this.
A car with swagger.
A car that proves a well-made sedan doesn't have to cross an ocean to be
worthy of American driveways.
We are Born Makers.
We made this.
The All-New Chrysler 200.
