FINDLAY, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Two videos created to launch new Cooper® tires have earned Bronze honors in the highly respected Telly Awards competition. A 2015 video announcing the new Discoverer STT Pro™ off-road tire and a 2016 video to debut the new Cooper Zeon RS3-G1™ high performance passenger car tire were selected as winners from among 13,000 entries from around the world. The Telly Awards competition honors outstanding local, regional and cable TV commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions and web commercials, videos and films.
The winning videos – which can be viewed on Cooper’s YouTube page at www.youtube.com/coopertire – were developed to convey excitement and spark consumer interest in the new tires while also highlighting their unique performance attributes for Cooper tire dealers who sell them.
