BMW is back in the Super Bowl and kicking off its campaign with some major star power – Arnold Schwarzenegger as Zeus, Greek god of lightning. Oh, and that mysterious new movie project Arnold teased via his Instagram post last week was indeed a fun way to kick off this epic story. The Instagram post received 1.7 million likes with tons of news sites speculating whether 'Zeus' was indeed a Super Bowl ad or new movie.
After a 7-year hiatus, the automaker has returned to the big game with Schwarzenegger and Salma Hayek Pinault starring as Zeus and Hera to generate some excitement for an all-new, fully-electric vehicle.
Today, Schwarzenegger and BMW are breaking a 30-second teaser, dubbed 'Something Electric is Brewing', to launch the campaign, led by creative AOR Goodby Silverstein & Partners.
Stay tuned to find out what Zeus is doing amongst the mortals, how Hera is involved, and where a BMW vehicle fits into this whole story.
