The Jeep® brand’s newest social media video, arriving on Earth Day, brings together the animals of the world via a video conference call to mark the arrival of the new 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe, and it appears they’re not much better at the calls than their human counterparts.
In “Earth Day: Video Conference Call,” animals, from apes, owls, snakes, elephants and alligators, to hippos, peacocks, iguanas, lions and wolves (keen observers to the video will see each participant’s unique name), suffer technological issues on the call, ranging from “you’re on mute” to “make the screen bigger” to others who have joined the meeting late and ask, “what did I miss?”.
Prior to the launch of this video, the Jeep brand debuted the 60-second “Earth Odyssey” video during the 2021 Golden Globes in February, paying homage to the iconic film “2001: A Space Odyssey,” but with a twist. The ”Earth Odyssey” video takes viewers on a global quest with the Wrangler 4xe through many of Earth’s different terrains and climates. While the Jeep explores these landscapes, animals sing along to the iconic classical music recording of “Also Sprach Zarathustra,” frequently associated with the film. The grand finale arrives at an iconic monolith with the new Jeep Wrangler 4xe plugged into it, charging.
The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4xe and Rubicon 4xe launch editions feature 375 horsepower, 470 lb.-ft. of trail-crushing torque, a 0-60 miles per hour performance time of just 6 seconds and a 17 kWh battery to readily handle most daily commutes and hours on the trail with electric-only power. The first-ever electrified Wrangler will be initially offered on two trim levels, Wrangler Sahara 4xe and Wrangler Rubicon 4xe.
