January 22 / Associated Press As part of a new marketing campaign called Break Through to raise the profile of Cadillac's newest vehicles, the CTS, XLR, Escalade and scalade EXT, television commercials will feature the song Rock and Roll by the group LED ZEPELIN, General Motors Corp. said Tuesday. It's the first time LED ZEPPELIN has sold its music for commercial use, GM said.
We wanted the 'Break Through' campaign to communicate a unified Cadillac message, Kim Kosak, Cadillac director of advertising and promotions, said in a statement.
The music lends a consistent message and tone throughout and also adds an emotional element to all the spots, Kosak said. The "Break Through" theme will be used in the marketing campaign during high profile events like the Super Bowl, Winter Olympics, Academy Awards, Wimbledon tennis and Ryder Cup golf along with other prime-time programming. The new campaign helps the luxury vehicle buyer understand that Cadillac is back with a bold new product lineup, said Mark LaNeve, Cadillac general manager.
