Budget Direct and 303 MullenLowe, Syndey have rolled out a new spot showcasing the coverage the insurance agency offers.
The animated/live-action mashup brings back special detectives Sarge and Jac as they investigate a crash following a thrilling video game style race through the city streets. The video game character, who happens to be very much at fault in this particular situation, has nothing to worry about. His car can repair itself.
Unfortunately, the man he collided with is all too real for that to happen. Yet, he’s got Budget Direct to pick up the pieces and take care of his situation.
It’s a fun spot and welcome shift from all too mundane insurance ads.
“As an insurer it’s important to highlight the serious consequences of dangerous driving while also showing how we take care of our customers when they are impacted by it. Our campaign’s blend of extraordinary meeting the real world, gave us a unique opportunity to do just that, in the latest instalment in our campaign,” said Jonathan Kerr, chief growth officer at Budget Direct.
The ad was filmed by the collaborative team of Danny Kleinman and Dave Wood through Rattling Stick / Good Oil.
“Collaborating with the likes of Danny Kleinman, Dave Wood, Framestore, and Good Oil on the latest instalment in the campaign, was a real joy. All made possible by the Budget Direct team. It’s no surprise that they remain Australia’s fastest growing major insurer,” said Bart Pawlak, ECD, 303 MullenLowe.
“In creating the latest instalment in this famous campaign, we never lost sight of two inter- related objectives: firstly, we want Budget Direct to remain the most entertaining brand in the category and as importantly we also want Budget Direct to continue to be the most effective brand in the category. We are confident that once again this commercial will deliver handsomely on both objectives!” Nick Cleaver, CEO, 303 MullenLowe Australia
