AMI's animated creativity takes out July Ad Impact Award

AMI's quirky renters insurance ad by Colenso BBDO has been named July's Ad Impact Award winner for its entertaining delivery of the policy. 

The TVC shows a range of possible situations where renters contents might get stolen, like a laptop being swiped on a train or in the park and even leaving a handbag in a club. It also shows the insurance also covers renters if their items get damaged, by accidentally sitting on an iPad or a friend spilling wine all over the lounge. 

According to Colmar Brunton, New Zealanders enjoyed the spot and it created a lot of appeal and affinity for the brand. The spot addressed one of the core challenges facing New Zealand renters, and it arrived at a time when renter security has been a major issue in mainstream media. The creativity of the campaign when combined with the topicality of the issue meant that the campaign really resonated with the target market.   

A Colmar Brunton release said the public is "more likely to use AMI in the future as they felt the ad was credible and relevant while providing them with new information about AMI".

Colmar Brunton also said the clever, entertaining animated style of the advertising has generated a lot of talkability among the public.

How is this still a thing? Reader's Digest curates 'articles of lasting interest' for nearly a century

In the last 97 years, the world has suffered the Great Depression, countless wars, the rise of tyranny, innumerable natural and man-made disasters and political scandals. We’ve mourned the rise of terrorism and celebrated the invention of the internet. We’ve put humans on the moon and explored that last frontier, oppressive regimes have fallen and human rights milestones have made history. Throughout it all, one thing has remained a constant of bathroom magazine baskets and rest home libraries: Reader’s Digest. Caitlin Salter talks to Australiasian group editor Louise Waterson about how this general interest publication has stood the test of time, and what the future holds.
