In 2006, Goodyear found itself with unheralded pressures coming from much more aggressive competitors, the emergence of
powerful Asian brands and a labor stoppage. Goodyear fought
back by re-introducing its iconic blimp, along with two lovable pilots that explained how Goodyear innovations helped get drivers
where they’re going. Goodyear helped people “Get there!” The
campaign launch resulted in an immediate increase in market
share and growth double that of the industry.

“The Truck That’s Changing It All” aimed to establish the redesigned
2007 Toyota Tundra as a legitimate pickup truck. True truckers
needed to have the ammo to win the bar stool debate. Speaking their language, connecting with them at a local level and
providing dramatic evidence of Tundra’s capabilities contributed
to the campaign’s success. The campaign tripled the number of
domestic full-size pickup replacers and reduced the monthly sales
gap to overtake Dodge as No. 3 in U.S. sales.
