Australians are being asked to download the government’s Covid tracking app. One of its main inducements is that we can all get back to work quickly. Hilariously unmotivating, isn’t it?
M&C Saatchi and betting agency, TAB, have a much better inducement – so we can get back to eating meat pies at the footy. Brilliant. THEIR inducement is hilariously motivating and their campaign film features a meat pie in an empty stadium being torn to bits by seagulls, to Mozart. Superb.
This might be the Aussiest ad of the year. And I write that with both enormous affection and the understanding that feeling a nation’s mood of the moment, feeding into a nation’s character humorously and doing it elegantly, like this spot does, are all advertising triumphs [:ed].
If you’re an Aussie, love this ad. If you’re not, love its simple beauty.
