Acura rejoins with Seinfeld, sponsors Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee [w/videos]
We enjoyed the opening season of Seinfeld’s offbeat Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee web series, a video serial where Jerry Seinfeld picked up his friends in some of his classic cars and… chatted. It was a simple premise that offered some genuinely enjoyable moments, even if the ‘cars’ connection was often a bit incidental. In any case, Acura must have felt the same way, as it has just inked a deal to be the sole sponsor for the series’ next season.
Acura, you may recall, already enjoys a relationship with the comedian – Seinfeld starred in the company’s 2012 Super Bowl ad alongside the NSX supercar concept. So perhaps it’s no surprise that it has signed on to sponsor 24 episodes of the series, due to roll out this year and next. Naturally, with any title sponsorship these days, you can expect to see some integration of the sponsor – in this case, Acura says such measures will involve its new 2014 MDX crossover, integrating “short, contextually relevant ads at the beginning and end of the episode.”
