Saucony is introducing a new TV ad campaign with 15, 30 and sixty second spots. Their PR agency, Mullen, sent this off to me yesterday. I like the message and love the branding campaign.

The multi-platform ad campaign is from Mechanica and the TV ads were produced by Shilo. Nice images, strong voice-over, and strong running story (and yes, they actually promote track & field!). Saucony has a print, digital and this TV portion of the campaign, titled Find Your Strong.
