"We are absolutely committed to developing the Clippers into not only one of the top teams on the court, but also one of the best organizations in professional sports," Clippers Owner Steve Ballmer said. "We are relentless in pursuit of our goals, and believe this campaign captures the essence of what it means to be a Clipper."
RPA and the Clippers worked with entertainment motion-picture company Panay Films to create the 60-second television spot.
"Our goal is to make the Clippers the most loved sports entertainment brand—period," said Kirt Danner, SVP, Group Account Director at RPA.
Another 60-second national TV placement will air during the Clippers season opener on Oct. 30.
Both the 60-second and 30-second versions will also air locally in the Los Angeles market in high-profile prime-time shows, live sports programming and Los Angeles and Orange County movie theaters.
Clippers out-of-home media will be a part of the L.A. skyline and along major freeways with wallscapes featuring emotional imagery capturing the "Be Relentless" attitude.
