It’s time for another Throwback Thursday Clip of the Week. In this week’s commercial, we have Baltimore’s very own Ray Lewis aka Inspector 52. Lewis played for the Baltimore Ravens as a linebacker for 17 years. He wasn’t born in Baltimore but the city still claims him as their own since he has done so much for football as well as the community. Easterns also has strong ties in Baltimore having a location in Rosedale, Maryland which is just outside of the city. It only made sense to bring Lewis on board and show the people of the DC, Maryland, and Virginia community that two strong forces can come together and create magic. Lewis starred in a series of commercials including this one being referred to as “Inspector 52”. The reason for this is because in each clip he is inspecting a certain part of a vehicle to show the vigorous inspection that vehicles from Easterns go through before they even make it to the lot.
It’s that time of the week again! It’s time for our Throwback Thursday Clip of the Week from Easterns Automotive Group. This commercial clip includes someone with a very special voice in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia community. Larry Michael, also known as “The Voice of the Washington Redskins” has one of the most distinct voices that you could ever hear. Since the Redskins hired him in 2005, Michael has been a household name to fans of the team throughout the area. The fact that he was a native of the area, growing up in Silver Spring, Maryland only made people love him more. As a broadcaster, Larry has always done a good job of carving out a lane for himself setting himself apart from the competition. Easterns has always had a great relationship with the Redskins organization as well as the players individually. Everyone thought that it would be a great idea for Easterns and Michael to team up to create magic. The voice of Larry Michael has credibility so by him discussing Easterns and what they bring to the automotive industry in the DMV area was brilliant. Typically Easterns commercials are funny and silly but this time Michael added a sense of seriousness to the brand to convey the message that Easterns is really a quality brand that is breaking barriers in the community. Watch the commercial clip below, Enjoy!
This week we have a special Throwback Thursday Clip of the Week from Easterns. This clip is a jingle commercial that was shot back in 2007 starring Ray Lewis, LaVar Arrington, and Clinton Portis. This is single-handedly the most well known Easterns commercial to date having over one million combined views on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. During the time that the commercial was filmed, both Arrington and Portis were playing for the Washington Ravens while Ray Lewis was playing for the Baltimore Ravens. These three coming together was a perfect way to unify the DC, Maryland, and Virginia community by highlighting players from both teams to come together to sing along, have fun, and represent a great brand. Easterns was one of the very first used car dealers both locally and nationally to have professional athletes in their commercials singing and dancing. These commercials because a part of people’s lives because it was one of the very few times that they were able to see some of their favorite athletes out of their normal serious and stern football characters. Many brands and companies have been influenced by marketing behind Easterns because they finally saw something that worked. We hope that you enjoy this clip! Feel free to sing along.
