Who’s it for: KiwiRail and TrackSafeNZ by DDB
Why we like it: Watching this spot definitely provoked a visceral reaction. And while watching the real-life footage is stressful, this ad implores people to think about the impacts of the near misses on the train drivers themselves. The half-crosses are also a clever nod to just how close these near misses could have been a fatality. Well done to DDB for making us remember the people for whom these situations stick with for a long time.
Who’s it for: Electric Kiwi, created in-house
Why we like it: We’ve all had those days – you get a flat tyre or forget your raincoat, or the cat runs away. However, a Kiwi attitude (and a free hour of power from Electric Kiwi) is there to get through those bad times with a smile on your face. We also love the cheeky, can-do nature of this ad as it's well-matched to Electric Kiwi's position as a challenger brand.
Who’s it for: Sealy of Australia by DDB
Why we like it: While this spot is for an Australian company, we enjoyed DDB’s deep-dive into mattress making for Sealy. With continuous camera movement, attention to detail and showcasing of technology, it illustrates what a surprisingly fascinating and innovating process making a mattress is.
