Inflatable Santa Floats Across Australia Spreading the Merry from Australia Post

Australia Post is using its annual Spread the Merry campaign this year with a continued focus on reconnecting with family and friends.

Created by The Monkeys, the campaign tells the story of an inflatable Santa who has been blown from a suburban lawn on a freewheeling airborne adventure across Australia.

“We could all use an added dose of merry and our new Spread the Merry campaign perfectly brings together a feeling of fun, wonder and surprise and at Australia Post we’re proud to be responsible for delivering parcels and cards full of joy right across Australia this festive season,” said Australia Post Chief Marketing Officer, Amber Collins.


The Monkeys Chief Creative Officer Ant Keogh added: “This is the fourth Spread the Merry campaign we’ve made in collaboration with Australia Post, and we’re really proud of how it has come together.”

The new campaign, directed by The Bobbsey Twins from Homicide, will air on broadcast television from 6 November, supported by radio and out-of-home, including a hero 3D billboard in Melbourne’s CBD from 21 November. The campaign also includes an audio described version for the visually impaired, and an Auslan version for the hearing impaired.
