Lily is back for March Madness for AT&T

(Lily is back with madness)

AT&T’s MVP Lily is bringing her marquee charm to a suite of new March Madness-themed spots set to air throughout the tournament, with the first to air starting this weekend during Selection Sunday on CBS

Just like a coach or an analyst breaks down the game, Lily is great at breaking down our products and services for our customers.

The new suite of creative will showcase a range of basketball themed moments, like providing a hyped up grand arena announcement for “this guy” as he walks into the AT&T store—she’s helping out customers in any way she can, college hoops style.

From In-store to In-the-Booth: Lily’s presence across integrations, TV, and digital keeps her close to every touchpoint of the spectator experience.

Like “AT&T at the Half” halftime integrations where Lily un-complicates the fan experience and makes it a no-brainer to navigate in-game action and get the best products that keep fans tuned into all things March Madness.

Additionally, Lily will be teaming up with a few special guests for spots that will air later in the tournament.

The fun campaign was created by our friends at BBDO LA, with digital being led by Critical Mass. AT&T is the Exclusive Wireless Partner of the NCAA, Final Four and March Madness, as well as Presenting Sponsor of the Final Four App.
