Los Angeles Chargers: Fight for LA by Saatchi & Saatchi
The Drum Creative Awards are here to fly the flag for creativity in the midst of the digital revolution
A new Fight for LA advertising campaign highlights the Chargers' return to the city it originally called home and points to the start of the 2017 NFL season.
Inspired by the commitment of the Chargers and the Spanos family – the owners of the Chargers – to earn the respect and loyalty of Angeleno football fans, the campaign features real people from different Los Angeles neighborhoods stating that they expect the team to work hard for their fandom. A back-and-forth conversation ensues, with honest responses from the Chargers, including quarterback Philip Rivers, running back Melvin Gordon and Chargers’ Hall of Famer LaDainian Tomlinson.
The campaign features four films designed to showcase the Chargers speaking candidly about what it will take to build the team’s following in Los Angeles.
