  • 4. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY S lapshot Creative is partnering with Brown-Forman and the Philadelphia Flyers to promote responsible consumption of alcoholic beverages and encourage hockey fans to pledge to stop driving buzzed by finding alternative ways to “experience life.” We plan to build the brand through educational promotion of Tennessee Whiskey and responsible drinking habits. By raising awareness and gauging perceptions about responsible drinking, we can motivate Philadelphia Flyers fans to change their behavior and the fan experience. SITUATION ANALYSIS Brown-Forman and the Philadelphia Flyers established a relationship in 2011 to promote safe drinking habits at hockey games, as well as to associate the Jack Daniel’s brand with corporate responsibility. There is currently a limited amount of advertising done within Wells Fargo Center and the surrounding community (Great Philly Area). There are no established “Beat The Buzz” social media accounts; Brown-Forman and buzzed driving promotions are few and far between; and post-drinking transportation is not endorsed at Philly Flyers events. COMPANY ANALYSIS Brown-Forman has been enriching the experience of life for over 150 years, but their focus on responsible drinking and advocacy against buzzed driving has not been a core focus. Their partnerships with designated driver programs need strengthening, and the Brown-Forman brand is not often associated with their products and responsible drinking messages. However, their Enrich the Experience of life campaign and work in recent years has been wildly successful. Their programs across the areas of responsible marketing, environmental sustainability, employee relations, economic contribution and community involvement have placed Brown-Forman at the top of their field. Through the adoption of innovative programs and partnerships with advocacy organizations, Brown-Forman can raise awareness of responsible drinking and encourage consumers to find safe alternatives to driving after drinking. By forging new partnerships with designation driver programs and advocacy organizations, while developing strong public relations campaigns, Brown-Forman can grow their brand image. 3 1 | SLAPSHOT CREATIVE
  • 5. CAMPAIGN STRATEGY We have created a hybrid campaign that combines Brown Forman’s Philadelphia Flyers partnership with new campaign methods and innovative strategies. The ultimate goal of the campaign is to encourage responsible drinking and safe driving practices among Philadelphia Flyers fans, while simultaneously promoting an image of corporate social responsibility for Brown Forman. We want to couple the well-known Jack Daniels brand with the responsible drinking message to give our audience a familiar name to associate with lesser-known Brown Forman. After performing an extensive market analysis we have chosen to advertise in areas frequented by our target audience: the Philadelphia Flyers fan. These areas include public transportation used to get to and from Wells Fargo Center and local radio stations that broadcast both home and away games. We plan to advertise heavily within the Wells Fargo stadium, utilizing dashboards, the Zamboni and the Jumbotron. We believe these will be the most effective advertising placements because over 60 percent of people we spoke to, say they pay attention to advertising once they are seated in the sports venue. To further promote Brown Forman’s social responsibility platform we plan to sponsor responsible drinking training programs such as R.A.M.P. and C.A.R.E. for local bars in the Philadelphia area. We will also encourage Flyers fans to utilize services similar to BeMYdd and the extensive Philadelphia public transportation network. Creation, population and management of social media accounts ranging from Facebook to Vine will be a part of the media strategy. Opportunities to win free tickets via social media contests created over the course of the campaign. Additional promotion of the Brown-Forman and Jack Daniel’s brand will take place in the Wells Fargo Center, the bars and restaurants in Wells Fargo and local bars who host Flyers watch parties. Promotional items will raise awareness of the Brown-Forman brand and it’s affiliation with Jack Daniel’s. Promotional items will include anything ranging from pens, to key chains that encourage fans to “Beat the Buzz”. BRAND AWARENESS Jack Daniels is a well-known brand among sports fans. Words such as delicious, classy, expensive and fun are commonly used to describe the brand. However, like other spirits and liquor brands, Jack Daniel’s is not commonly associated with sporting events, including hockey. Specifically within hockey venues, there is relatively low liquor competition. The combination of low competition and high brand recognition provides Brown-Forman with an opportunity to break-through the noise and establish Jack Daniel’s as a beverage staple in an otherwise beer saturated atmosphere.

  • 7. CAMPAIGN OBJECTIVES EDUCATION The first step in changing behaviors is through education. This is done by advertising what needs to change and why. The first step of our campaign focuses on the education of buzzed driving and what its real life consequences are. Information to support our efforts was taken from statistics on the correlation between vehicle accidents and alcohol consumptions. AWARENESS The next step in our campaign is changing people’s attitudes towards buzzed driving. According to research done by the Ad Council, most people who drive buzzed mean well and don’t associate themselves as being dangerous behind the wheel. Whether they’ve had one or seven drinks, they think they are sober enough to drive, when in fact they present a serious threat to themselves and others on the road. By changing attitudes, beliefs about buzzed driving will change as well. We want to make them believe that, if they can feel the effects of alcohol they should not get behind the wheel of a car. CHANGING BEHAVIOR The final step of our campaign is changing behavior. Through promotions and education we hope people will understand what buzzed driving means and become aware of its consequences. By providing alternatives to buzzed driving we can change their behavior. By highlighting public transportation, encouraging people to pledge to be designated drivers and making DD services readily available we hope people will use these alternatives and stop driving buzzed. SWOT ANALYSIS S W O T > focused campaign with a target audience that is easily > previously established partnership with Philadelphia Flyers - sible drinking and alternatives to driving after drinking > media partnerships with Comcast communications allow us to reach our audience directly tion surrounding not driving after drinking > alternatives to buzzed driving are present, and the public transportation opportunities are vast - > statistical evidence to support buzzed driving is limited > all-inclusive venue (Wells Fargo Center) > focused campaign, centered directly around a single NHL team may limit the amount of campaign exposure > ability to partner with educational awareness programs like RAMP and CARE who promote safe serving habits for bars and restaraunts > responsible drinking campaigns are overused and popular amongst distributors (a lot of noise) > mediums for advertising on public transportation are well-established and well traveled by Flyers fans are associated with the fan experience > expand the Be My DD program across state lines and establish a partnership with the City of Philadelphia and Brown-Forman > fully integrated campaign that can be easily transferred and applied to other teams and venues in the NHL > opportunity to establish Brown-Forman as a leader in corporate social responsibility and the promotion of safe drinking habits within sports > fans will begin to discover who Brown-Forman is as a company and associate them with responsible drinking habits > success of the Flyers over the course of their regular season sorship/promotions by other alcohol-related brands - > Flyers fans are associated with being rowdy spectators > prominence of alcohol, bars and restaurants at and around Wells Fargo Center SLAPSHOT CREATIVE | 6
  • 8. TARGET MARKET PROFILE CONSUMER ANALYSIS Our target audience consists of male and female hockey fans aged 21 to 45 from the Greater Philadelphia area. Our core focus is on alcohol consumers attending NHL league games, while targeting those seeking transportation to and from event venues, as well as surrounding fan bars. We believe that fans don’t associate themselves with buzzed driving and are unaware of local designated driver programs. They also may not associate corporate social responsibility with Brown-Forman and Tennessee Whiskey.

  • 9. [ SECONDARY RESEARCH [ ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION Studies show that even as little as one drink can impair driving ability. ONE DRINK ALCOHOL AMOUNTS 12 oz MODERATE DRINKING BUZZED DRINKING DRUNK/BINGE DRINKING + + + 5 oz + Accidents are 36.6 percent more severe even when alcohol was barely detectable in a drivers blood.” —David Phillips, Sociologist at University of California, San Diego 1.5 oz (80 proof) BUZZED DRIVING CAMPAIGNS The Ad Council was one of the first to develop a campaign focusing on ‘buzzed driving’ instead of ‘drunk driving’. They chose this focus because research reflected many impaired drivers excused dangerous driving habits by saying they were only buzzed. Since the launch of the campaign in 2005, the number of people who have died in a highway crash involving a driver or a motorcycle operator with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher has decreased steadily each year, from about 13,500 in 2005 to just under 11,000 in 2009.” —Ad Council SLAPSHOT CREATIVE | 8
  • 10. [ SECONDARY RESEARCH [ ALCOHOL MANAGEMENT Along with our target audience of hockey fans aged 21 to 45, we plan to create awareness of buzzed driving and promote responsibility when it comes to alcohol consumption with the help of the Wells Fargo Center’s restaurant and bar employees. By encouraging management and employees to take alcohol management courses, they will be better equipped to handle fans that choose to drink, as well as provide a safer environment for everyone. > C.A.R.E. (Controlling Alcohol Risks Effectively) - This program is offered online through the American Hotel and Lodging Educational Institute. > R.A.M.P. (Responsible Alcohol Management Program) - This is an umbrella term for a 5-step program, whereupon certification is given upon completion. The program was developed by the Pennsylvania License Control Board (PLCB), and once the establishment is R.A.M.P. certified, management must maintain compliance.

  • 11. TRANSPORTATION According to Life and Leisure magazine’s “America’s Favorite Cities 2012” feature, Philadelphia was ranked number 17 in the nation for public transportation and pedestrian friendliness. Due to having one of the top public transportation systems in the nation, our campaign will promote using the local transportation system as a preventative measure for buzzed driving. Along with the subway, bus, taxi and trolley services, we will promote a partnership with designated driver services, such as BeMyDD, for fans that have driven to the game but have found they have consumed too much alcohol to safely drive home. BENEFITS AND ADVANTAGES TO BEMYDD > Ride in the comfort of your own car. > Far more affordable than a limo or chauffeur > Professional drivers > Flexibility > Door-to-door drop-off > Eliminate the hassle of finding a taxi > Both you and your car get home SLAPSHOT CREATIVE | 10

  • 14. [ PRIMARY RESEARCH [ INDIVIDUAL INTERVIEWS As a part of our primary research, we conducted in-depth interviews with nine hockey fans. We asked them questions about their alcohol consumption at sporting events, attitudes about hockey games and perceptions of advertising during hockey games, among various other questions. Erin Carlson [21] Jacob Fischer [21] Becca Faherty [21] “I don’t drive buzzed, but I know that a lot of people do simply for lack of a better option for getting home and getting there when they want to.” “I absolutely love the experience of attending the games in person. There's always an electric atmosphere, and fans really get into the game. I've loved the sport for so long, and it's always a good time going out to support your team.” 13 | SLAPSHOT CREATIVE Bryon McElwee Zach Weinberg [22] [23] Ethan Moses [22] “Buzzed driving is having had 4 beers in about two hours, or simply not having nausea—just depends on the situation I think.” Mike Schmidt [45] Wesley Davis [22] Amie Davis [22] “Sometimes public transportation is inconvenient, taxi’s are way too expensive and there are no buses that go all the way to the suburbs. Its also transportation after a sporting event because of the hectic nature when a sporting event ends. “ “I don’t really pay attention to advertising at hockey games that much. It doesn’t interest me. If it was more catch my attention more.” “I think jumbotron ads are the most effective because that is where my attention is if it is not on the game. I’m looking there to check the scores and see what I “There is no fan like a hockey fan. We are invested in not only the development of the sport itself, but also all of the games and the players. You go to a hockey game to watch the game and cheer on your team. I will say, however, we know how to drink. Hockey fans can be rowdy, and this usually stems from drinking before the game or drinking during so that you’re boozed up to celebrate a win or mourn a loss.”
  • 15. FOCUS GROUP As a part of our primary research, we conducted in-depth interviews with nine hockey fans. We asked them questions about their alcohol consumption at sporting events, attitudes about hockey games and perceptions of advertising during hockey games, among various other questions. Here are a few quotes from conversations we gained from our discussion: “If I’m drunk I won’t drive home, but if I only feel buzzed that won’t prevent me from driving home.” “Random fans screaming is annoying. People who don’t know anything about the sport can be “If there was a service that would pick me up at anytime within the hour for a reasonable price I SLAPSHOT CREATIVE | 14
  • 16. KEY INSIGHTS According to our online survey, most hockey fans drive themselves to NHL games where they often consume alcohol. Because of this, hockey fans are the perfect market to target for designated driver services. Although fans may realize they are buzzed, they do not see themselves as a danger behind the wheel. Most hockey fans we spoke with have never used a DD service, but if it were readily available, they would use one that was reasonably priced and convenient. before and/or after they attend NHL hockey games. Although people recognize brand such as Jack Daniel’s, they are not familiar with the parent company Brown-Forman. 15 | SLAPSHOT CREATIVE
  • 17. [ CREATIVE EXECUTIONS [ MEDIA STRATEGY Slapshot Creative will implement a hybrid media strategy. By fusing traditional methods of advertising with newer technologies we will promote responsible drinking habits while changing the behavior of our target market. Through radio spots, print advertising and social media engagement we will encourage fans to beat the buzz and find alternatives to driving after drinking. Bold, strategic promotion of the Jack Daniel’s brand will raise awareness of Brown-Forman and their commitment to corporate responsibility and enhancement of the fan experience. All media strategies will begin to be implemented one month before the first regular season NHL game in September and conclude after the Stanley Cup finals in April. CREATIVE EXECUTIONS The Beat the Buzz campaign centers around measures to prevent buzzed and drunk driving. The campaign’s tone will be fun and informative. We will stay away from being preachy and avoid using scare tactics. We want Flyers Fans to make the right decision on their own, with a little help from Brown- Forman. We have come up with a number of ways to execute our creative strategy and get our message across to Flyers fans. DRINK SCORECARD PROMOTIONAL ITEMS Flyers fans are important to us. We want to see you get to and from games safely. Use this drink scorecard to keep track of how many drinks you consume throughout the night. Have fun and stay safe—the Flyers need their fans. (averages) buzzed drunk SPONSORED BY: DRINK SCORECARD It can be difficult to monitor the amount of alcoholic beverages consumed in a night out on the town. The Drink Scorecard allows Flyers fans at participating bars to keep track of the amount of drinks they consume while watching Flyers games. This promotional item will help fans become aware of their alcohol intake so they can make smart decisions in regards to driving home from bars or the games. GIFT BAG We found a common theme in the interviews we conducted: people love free merchandise. Due to this insight, we will create a promotional bag of goodies with the Beat the Buzz logo on each item. They will be distributed to the first 2,000 fans at the beginning of two Flyers home games. Promo items will include water bottles, draw-string bags, keychains, T-shirts, pens, key chains, plastic stadium cups, etc. BEAT THE BEAT THE BEAT THE BEAT THE SLAPSHOT CREATIVE | 16

  • 19. PROMOTIONAL EVENTS BEER GOGGLE SHOOTOUT Who says drinking education can’t be fun? One way to make an impression with our Beat the Buzz campaign is to host beer goggle shootouts during home games. We will purchase police-grade beer goggles and have contestants wear them while trying to shoot a puck into the goal. This promo event will remind fans how much their senses are impaired while consuming alcohol. BEAT THE BUZZ[ER] At half-time or during a timeout, 2 randomly selected contestants will navigate an obstacle course to get dressed in hockey gear. This will be timed and the goal is for one of the participants to complete the above task and score a goal before the buzzer sounds. The winner will receive Beat the Buzz promo gear. BUZZER BEATER GIVE-AWAY If a Flyers player scores on a buzzer beater Brown-Forman will donate money to a local DD service and will handout $30 taxi vouchers to adults 21+ SIGN-UP SATURDAY At one of the Saturday Flyers games, we will have a stand in the Wells Fargo Center where fans can take a pledge to be a DD for the night. Those that sign-up are given a Beat the Buzz member card and a promo swag bag full of Brown-Forman and Beat the Buzz gear. After the game, those with membership cards can go on the ice and meet Flyers players. BATTLE OF THE BARS Brown-Forman will invite bars in the Philadelphia area to a select few Flyers games throughout the season. At half-time, the bar owner and staff compete in an obstacle course on the rink. Winners will receive free R.A.M.P. or C.A.R.E. training for their bar, donated by Brown-Forman. SLAPSHOT CREATIVE | 2
