ACURA JOINS AS EXCLUSIVE SPONSOR OF COMEDIANS IN CARS GETTING COFFEE
NEW YORK, NY and CULVER CITY, CA (June 5, 2013) - Acura, one of the world's most technologically advanced luxury automotive brands, has signed on as the sole sponsor of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, the popular award-winning Web series created by and starring Jerry Seinfeld. Acura will sponsor 24 new episodes to be released in 2013 and 2014.
Seinfeld, who previously worked with Acura and starred in the luxury automaker's much-heralded 2012 Super Bowl commercial, will incorporate several unique product integrations, including the much-anticipated, all-new Acura MDX. "We at Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee are so glad a company we already admire has stepped forward to support us," said Jerry Seinfeld. "Not everyone understood what we were doing. But like Moe Green who invented Las Vegas, Acura is a company of vision and guts. We could not be more thrilled to have them as our sponsor. Because of them, we advance!"
"We love Jerry's unconventional, fan-first approach of creating great content and trusting that the right people will find it," said Mike Accavitti, Acura Senior Vice President of Auto Operations. It is totally consistent with Acura's organic approach of putting the customer first and building the vehicle around them." In terms of execution, Acura and Seinfeld are aligned on a unique approach, building content around the consumer - not the other way around. As the only sponsor the upcoming 24 episodes, Acura will integrate short, contextually relevant ads at the beginning and end of each episode.

"It's a great fit to have Acura on board and through our exclusive partnership, we will be working closely to engage millions of fans around the fun, simple pleasures of driving."
