REI launches first broadcast ads


SEATTLE Recreational Equipment Inc. announced that it is revealing its first two broadcast commercials in select cities from Nov. 30 through Dec. 24.

The commercials, created by BBDO Atlanta, are designed to complement REI's seasonal marketing "Find Out" campaign. The commercials, entitled “Tree” and “Fine Dining,” portray the outdoors as a place to build community while demonstrating that outdoor recreation is an activity everyone can enjoy.


“Our new ads capture the co-op’s love of the outdoors and our desire to share that love with others. We hope viewers find them inviting, fun and authentic, and that they are motivated to spend more time in the outdoors,” said Tom Vogl, REI VP marketing. “Whether taking shelter from rain while hiking through an old growth forest or sharing sandwiches at a campsite while being awestruck by the stars above, we want viewers to be inspired to experience nature firsthand.”
