WWF and Land Rover put radio to good—and novel—use

If you believe the NZ on Air media consumption study, music is moving online faster than other content. But you can still reach 83 percent of the country over a week with radio and approximately one in ten New Zealanders each day across just four stations, RNZ National, The Edge, ZM and Newstalk ZB. As a result, the ad spend figures for radio are holding firm. And two brands have used the medium in interesting ways recently, with World Wide Fund for Nature putting an ad inside a song for its Last 55 campaign and Land Rover going long to celebrate its heritage.

Vero connects the dots—and the shots—to prove its worth, bull usage hits all-time low

For many years, Vero has taken a bovine-heavy approach to its advertising. And while Sensation, the company's 1200kg Black Angus bull mascot who burst onto the scene in 2003 when Big launched the brand in New Zealand, features at the end of its new 60 second spot, the company has taken a different, more serious tack in an effort to show that insurance 'is not about things going wrong, it’s about an insurer putting them right'.

Jaguar gets down with the kids

Jaguar drivers seem like they'd probably be more familiar with 'tally ho old chap' than 'OMG! LOL!'. But that hasn't stopped the premium car brand and its agency Big from using the line 'WTXF?' in a new campaign for its XF model that's appearing on super-sized billboards in the main centres and on extra large online banners.

Land Rover shows off its rich outdoor heritage with unique approach to comparative advertising

Land Rover started off not long after World War II when a farmer in the UK stripped a battered army jeep and decided to build something more appropriate. 65 years on and the cars are certainly a whole heap more luxurious, but the brand hasn't forgotten its roots, and Big Communications is showcasing this evolution with a new campaign that has given the international creative a local twist.
