You’re Trying to Get More Light in the Room and an Astronaut Crashes Through Your Ceiling

That’s one way to let the sun shine in.

Tower has launched a new TVC-led campaign via Bastion Shine, assuring Kiwis that no matter what life throws at them Tower has their back.

The 30-second spot, called Skylight, features a couple seeking more light in their living room – only to have an astronaut suddenly crash through the ceiling.

That’s one way to let the sun shine in and get more light.


Richard Maddocks, chief creative officer at Bastion Shine said: “We know how difficult it is to cut through in the insurance category, so we’re really excited to combine the fast-moving world insight with absurd moments of catastrophe.”

The spot was directed by Florence Noble and produced by EIGHT Australasia.
