Gregg’s audio-visual feast lands Colmar Brunton Ad Impact award
By

At the beginning of June, Gregg’s released a high-energy brand ad that pulled its disparate product strings together. It was an explosion of colour that gave a nod to the brand’s cheeky heritage by showing a range of mischievous Kiwi characters using the products in their own unique way. And with each segment playing out to to an infectious backtrack, the ad was an audio-visual feast that made jelly, coffee, spices, hot chocolate and food pastes look like party essentials. The creative efforts of FCB and the production skills of Flying Fish have now caught the attention of the team at Colmar Brunton, who have awarded the spot the Ad Impact award for June.

The idea of multiple discovery is that “scientific discoveries and inventions are made independently and more or less simultaneously by multiple scientists and inventors.” It happened with the theory of evolution, it happened with the discovery of oxygen and it’s happened a lot in advertising, something James Hurman discussed in a story in Idealog a few years back. And, following on from the Vodafone spot that chronicled the struggles of a courier driver trying to locate the owner of a piglet named Piggy-Sue, BP and Ogilvy & Mather also pulled at the heartstrings with a 90-second spot that showed a motorcyclist going to extreme measures to reunite a bunny with its young owner. So won the battle of the lost creatures? According to Colmar Brunton’s Ad Impact research for May, it was BP that won out over Vodafone, despite being beaten to the punch by the telco.
