Chrysler 'Balloon' by Wieden + Kennedy Portland

A new ad campaign celebrates 100 years of the Dodge brand

AUBURN HILLS, MI. – Chrysler has rolled out a new TV ad to mark the 100th anniversary since the Dodge brothers formed their eponymous automotive company.

The TV spot by Wieden + Kennedy Portland, depicts the spirit of the brothers, John and Horace, at an imagined Gatsby-esque party. The spot ends with a shot of the new 2015 Dodge Challenger next to two 1915 Dodge Touring cars.

The ad is the first in a series that will be rolled out this year, supported by print and digital.
