James Corden is getting a tour of the world, thanks to a handful of real Chase Sapphire Reserve cardholders. The TV host leans on people going gorilla trekking in Africa, sandboarding in the Chilean desert and other adventure destinations to help plan his next vacation in a campaign from Droga5.

Last year, Chase’s ‘Reserve What's Next’ campaign introduced Chase Sapphire Reserve's travel philosophy which inspired people by celebrating travel experiences that the card enabled. This year, the work has shifted focus to the Chase Sapphire Reserve cardholders through immersive travel stories – providing inspiration, curating experiences, and exploring what's unique and contemporary from across the globe.

The travelers consisted of a local TV lifestyle expert, a professional photographer, a former professional snowboarder and a bartender, all bound by the common thread of pursuing their passions by seeking new adventures. Of all of the brand’s cardholders, Droga5 believed the Chase Sapphire Reserve tribe had a more curious, adventurous spirit, which is precisely why they tapped real cardmembers – on all seven continents – to help "a very busy" James Corden plan his next vacation.

Droga5 enlisted director Thibaut Grevet to carry out the creative vision. The 2017 Chase Sapphire Reserve campaign launches this week with other continent spots rolling out online, digital/social, and TV through the end of the year.
