Special Group puts on the gummies, dabbles in rural humour

There's gold in them thar hills and the rural sector is still the undoubted engine of the New Zealand economy, but agricultural clients aren't generally regarded as being particularly creatively rewarding for the shiny arsed agency folk and the vast majority of campaigns for rural products tend to stick to a tried, true and fairly bland formula. So Special Group has tried to add some humour to the mix with its 'Prevention is better than cure' campaign for Zoetis' Teat Seal that shows what farmers could be doing instead of dealing to mastitis. 


Zoetis is the newly rebranded animal health division of Pfizer.

Rogue Society and Motion Sickness explain name change to Scapegrace

A new campaign by Rogue Society Gin, via Motion Sickness, declares they have ‘made a name for themselves’ and the New Zealand company doesn’t just mean figuratively. After an international scuffle with an American brewing company that had a beer called 'Rogue', the company has rebranded to be Scapegrace Dry Gin to better promote its product overseas.
