ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., March 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Official NCAA® Corporate Partner LG Electronics USA is tipping off March Madness® this year with a new series of television ads on TBS, CBS, TNT and TruTV along with digital ads that show how LG helps fans "Do Game Day Right®" with the help of "game changers" like the LG InstaView™ refrigerator and LG TWINWash™ laundry innovations. The new commercials, launched in conjunction with the 2017 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, celebrate life's perfectly imperfect moments with light-hearted humor to showcase how LG appliances are there to help fans "make the save" during those inevitable "not-so-perfect" game day moments at home.
The new television ad campaign features mascots from popular college teams including Michigan State's Spartan, University of Kentucky's Wildcat, North Carolina's Ramses the Ram, Northwestern University's Willie the Wildcat, University of Miami's Sebastian the Ibis, Oregon State University's Benny Beaver and Southern Methodist University's Peruno Mustang.
In the first spot, team mascots raid the fridge for their game day diet using LG's InstaView technology, which allows users to knock twice to illuminate the refrigerator's sleek glass panel and see inside without opening the door. The popular mascots return in a second playful TV ad about how the LG TWINWash laundry innovation helps save the day after a series of comical team jersey mishaps. LG's TWINWash system features the LG SideKick, a "mini" washing machine which can be placed under a main LG washer, making it an ideal laundry solution for small, custom-care laundry loads including special care items.
"Life is all about imperfect moments and we want to remind consumers that it's okay to have a spill once in awhile because LG will be there with innovative technologies to get them back on track and make life good," said David VanderWaal, vice president of marketing for LG Electronics USA. "March Madness is a great time to showcase how LG product innovations both make daily lives easier and help fans everywhere Do Game Day Right – from cleaning that team jersey to watching the game at home with the best television technology available."
