Henkel Cleaning Brand Persil ProClean Ad To Debut During Super Bowl 50
Only available to US consumers since 2015, the laundry detergent has released a 15-second spot teasing its upcoming Super Bowl ad.
Another consumer brand has joined the lineup of Super Bowl 50 advertisers.
Henkel, the parent company of brands like Dial soap, Renuzit air freshner and Right Guard antiperspirants, announced today that it would be using the Super Bowl to launch its 2016 ad campaign for Persil ProClean laundry detergent.
“A Super Bowl commercial comes with a hefty price tag, but there is no better time or audience than the Super Bowl and its 100 million+ viewers to build brand awareness,” says the brand’s SVP and general manager, Andreas Hartleb, in a statement announcing the campaign. “For those consumers who haven’t yet heard about the brand — Persil is ready for its big debut.”
Persil ProClean has been available in the US for less than year, but the brand has been around since 1907, when it launched in Europe. According to Henkel, its investment in a Super Bowl spot for the laundry detergent shows its dedication to making the brand a success.
“Persil ProClean might be a new player in the US market, but Persil ProClean means business and is here to stay,” says Hartleb.
Along with the announcement, Henkel released a 15-second “Persil Big Game Commercial Prologue” introducing its stain-fighting Super Hero, “The Professional,” and encouraged viewers to “join the conversation” using the hashtag #GameDayStains.
In addition to Persil ProClean’s announcement, Snickers, SunTrust Bank and Butterfingers all released Super Bowl 50 teaser ads today.
