AT&T Unveils U.S. Olympic Athlete Ad Campaign

Communications company AT&T is providing viewers an inside look at athletes’ day-to-day lives since Beijing Olympics through an interactive experience called ‘My Journey.’

The new creative series in support of AT&T’s sponsorship of Team USA will capture their training and accomplishments while highlighting the effort put forth by these athletes to achieve their goals and inspire others.

Beginning today, July 26, AT&T will launch ‘My Journey’ and introduce seven short films featuring Team USA athletes in their everyday lives as they prepare for the Olympic Games.

Special 30-second segments will air during primetime broadcasts of the London Olympic Games, which also encourage fans to interact with the ‘My Journey’ series across multiple social channels.

The ‘My Journey’ films share the athlete’s personal stories from Beijing to London, highlighting their experience as they prepare, once again, to compete on the world’s biggest stage.

Along with the films, fans get to know their favorite athletes on a personal level by downloading their favorite songs for free and entering for a chance to win the athlete’s gear.

As part of this overall campaign, AT&T recently launched ‘Warming Up’ and ‘Afternoon Run’ spots that feature Team USA athletes illustrating the obstacles they face preparing for the Olympic Games and how AT&T supports the athletes through its network of possibilities.

During the Olympic Games, AT&T plans to launch the ‘New Possible’ advertising series to capture the drive of Olympic hopefuls everywhere, empowered and inspired by their modern, tech-enabled connection to the games.

AT&T worked with The Marketing Arm to manage the ‘My Journey” experience, and with BBDO for the advertising creative.
