Early last month, DDB New Zealand won two Mashies for Sky’s Bring Down the King campaign, Best Twitter Campaign and Best International Digital campaign – that’s 2 of just 24 Mashies Bests handed out for social and digital marketing worldwide.
This week, DDB NZ launched the idea that Sky On Demand puts “the power of freedom” in users’ hands, via a 60 second spot called Murmuration.
Damon Stapleton, chief creative officer, DDB commented, “In 60 seconds we’ve created something that demonstrates how complete freedom might feel. The epic film is engaging and moving and continues to champion SKY as New Zealand’s preeminent storytellers.”
Yep, it’s an ad that will captivate mums and dads and get its message through their hearts and into their heads. Much of that is due to The Sweet Shop’s Steve Ayson. And restraint. Both Ayson and DDB have kept their focus on one thing, the power of freedom in your hands. Remember the maxim that single-minded ads work? Watch one hard at work here.
