Marketing, advertising & media intelligence
Industry moves and shakes at Y&R Wellington, Whybin\TBWA, Trade Me, Tangible Media, Mango, Mediacell and ADK.
Taking inspiration from the ‘Fix. Fasten. Forget’ campaign slogan from the well-loved Havoc and Newsboy campaign of the early 2000s, Y&R Wellington has now launched ‘Fix. Fasten. Don’t forget,’ a government-funded follow-on that aims to remind Kiwis of the importance of securely fastening items around the home. But rather than using a humorous educational approach, Y&R aims to catch the audience off guard with three ads designed to shock Kiwis out of their inertia.
There have been a few savvy campaigns capitalising on the RWC without breaking the rules around sponsorship recently. And there have also been a few campaigns trying to capitalise on the own goals scored by adidas and Telecom. This 'interactive' print ad for Tuatara beer by Y&R Wellington cleverly combines the two.
