For the 17th consecutive year, Subaru will be the broadcast sponsor of the Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG Awards), airing tonight on TNT and TBS starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. During the broadcast, Subaru will air five commercials highlighting what makes the automaker more than just a car company, including a new spot that showcases the revised 2021 Subaru Crosstrek.

"Barn Wedding" is a national TV spot created by Carmichael Lynch on behalf of Subaru of America. It showcases some of the ways that the Subaru company touches the lives of its owners. The ad focuses on a brother and sister as they hit a few unexpected roadblocks on the way to their sister's barn wedding. Their new Crosstrek, with its upgraded 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and fresh face is up for the challenge, which also sees them managing to perform a good deed for a lost cat along the way.

"While we won't be heading to the silver carpet for in-person SAG Awards® this year, we're excited for the opportunity to show viewers nationwide the way Subaru embodies Love for our owners," said Alan Bethke, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Subaru of America, Inc. "The 'Barn Wedding' spot demonstrates not only the capability and power of the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek, but it also shows the values of caring for others – including furry friends – that we share with our owners."

Other ads airing during the broadcast include Forester Reforesting, Dog Tested, Subaru Loves Pets and Feeding America.

During the 2020 edition of Subaru's Share the Love Event, the company's year-end sales initiative, more than $20.6 million was donated bringing the total donated over the last 13 years to over $200 million. Since 2015, Subaru has not placed a cap on the total amount of contributions it makes to its national Subaru Share the Love Event charitable partners: the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), Make-A-Wish®, Meals on Wheels America and the National Park Foundation.

Subaru has also recently extended its Subaru Loves the Earth campaign, which sees the company partner with TerraCycle for nationwide recycling efforts.
