Bryan Brothers Return To The 1930s (and '60s, '90s) To Sell Esurance At Open In 2013

By Barry Janoff

July 29, 2013: With the 2013 U.S. Tennis Open fast approaching, online insurance company Esurance has launched a multi-media marketing campaign featuring the Bryan Brothers, who are ranked No. 1 in the world among men's doubles tennis teams.

The campaign, "Tennis for the Modern World," is anchored by TV spot that compares the progression of tennis styles and equipment to the modern technology used by Esurance (and other unnamed insurance companies) to offer the best service to consumers.

This is the third year of the alliance between Esurance, a division of Allstate, and Mark and Bob Bryan.

This year's effort also includes an extensive Facebook sweepstakes offering a trip for two to New York to attend opening night at the U.S. Open on Aug. 26 as special guests of the Bryan Brothers. The winner also receives spending money, hotel and an Esurance gift pack. (Details here.)

The spot will run on network and cable, including during in U.S. Open and U.S. Open Series. The campaign also includes print, online, search, display and social media elements that will run through Sept. 9, the final day of this year's tournament. Lead agency is Leo Burnett, Chicago.

The U.S. Open will air on CBS, ESPN and Tennis Channel. In 2010, Esurance signed on as the official car insurance partner of the U.S. Open. Esurance recently expanded its tennis alliance to include sponsorship of the Emirates Airline U.S. Open Series, the six tennis events that lead to the U.S. Open.

The primary TV spot shows the Bryans in tennis outfits, using tennis racquets and playing on tennis courts in the 1930s, 1960s, 1990s and 2013. Breakout spots follow the Bryans behind the scenes and then during the filming of each of the time-period segments.

"Over the last 100 years, tennis has gotten a lot less . . . dainty.," offers a voiceover. "Racquets are less splintery. Courts more surfacey. Technology made the game a whole lot faster. And awesomer. It's a lot like how Esurance has used technology to build car insurance for the modern world. Advantage, you. Let's give it up for the modern world." (See the full spot here.)

Esurance activation also includes support of Arthur Ashe Kids' Day on Aug. 24. The Facebook destination also includes downloadable infographics highlighting the Bryans' careers as well as advancements in racquet technology, tennis fashion and doubles tennis.
