WebVan Launches First TV Ads in San Francisco Area

Grocery delivery company Webvan on Friday kicks off a regional integrated campaign with the debut of TV advertisements, which will pepper the San Francisco Bay Area with messages stressing the convenience of using the service.

The 60-second television spot, produced by Publicis & Hal Riney, San Francisco, is called "The Pledge," and will run during the Academy Awards show, as well as shows like The Practice, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and Felicity. The commercial will run through the end of March.

Print, online and outdoor advertising will also be part of the media mix.

The regional campaign is a prelude to the expansion of advertising to other markets. In March, a series of television ads introducing the Webvan service will run in Atlanta, Chicago, Washington DC and Seattle.
