PRSA Nashville presents
Nissan Returns to the Super Bowl after Nearly Two Decades,
Wins Hearts and Clicks in #withdad Campaign

WEDNESDAY, March 18 at 11:30 a.m.

The Southern | 150 3rd Ave South | Nashville, TN 37201

Free valet and validated parking for the Pinnacle garage are available.

For the first time in 18 years, Nissan is back in the ‘big game.’ Leading into Super Bowl XLIX, Nissan returned in a big way with a full cross platform campaign celebrating dads. Nissan enlisted popular YouTube creators to kick off the #withdad campaign by bringing their own family adventures to life, followed by a 90-second ad within the Super Bowl. The ad has since amassed more than 22 million views on YouTube, generated millions of social media impressions and Google recently named Nissan’s #withdad commercial the winner of this year’s YouTube AdBlitz.


Terri Welch, senior manager of marketing communications for Nissan, oversaw all aspects of the 360-degree campaign from creation to integration of social, PR and cause marketing. Join PRSA Nashville on March 18 to find out how #withdad goes far beyond a hashtag.
