The Now United partnership will cater to first time auto buyers through a dedicated digital and social campaign with 15 group members to include new music, daily and weekly YouTube shows, real time social engagement on Instagram, TikTok and Twitter as well as branded onstage uniforms for the band members.
Now United is the world’s first global pop team, comprised of 15 different singers and dancers from 15 different countries; India, Brazil, UK, Mexico, Philippines, Finland, South Korea, Australia, Senegal, China, Japan, Germany, Russia, Canada and the United States of America. Created by music industry icon Simon Fuller in 2017 they have quickly amassed a fanatical following of 40 million fans worldwide.
“The Jeep brand is unique in that it is truly a global automotive brand, one that is instantly recognizable across every continent,” said Olivier Francois, Chief Marketing Officer, FCA. “Our fans and followers around the world understand that passion, authenticity and freedom drive the brand. Now United shares these same core attributes with us. As the band undertakes its summer tour with a first-stop in Brazil we look forward to a partnership with Simon Fuller that both represents and unites our fans in a way that only Jeep and Now United could make possible”.
Simon Fuller added, “I am excited to be collaborating with Olivier Francois, who is a branding genius with an extraordinary innovative mind, and welcoming Jeep as a global partner of Now United. Jeep is such an iconic brand and we share their powerful spirit and sense of adventure.
