Helping to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the classic Will Farrell comedy "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," production company Spears and Arrows and Director Timothy Kendall teamed with agency GSD&M and auto brand Dodge (part of the portfolio of brands offered by leading global automaker and mobility provider Stellantis) on the new “Life Lessons” ad. The spot features actor Gary Cole reprising his role as Reese Bobby and using the ‘road as his classroom’ to impart pearls of wisdom to his young son Ricky Bobby and best friend Cal Naughton, Jr. as they speed from one questionable adventure to another in a Dodge Durango.
