FTW: NZ Lotteries and DDB focus on the winning

Judging from the (unusually) complimentary comments on StopPress, the pundits seem to like the new—and quite bizarre—Instant Kiwi campaign. And, to launch NZ Lotteries' new overarching tagline of 'Winning Happens', DDB has also released a series of entertaining radio ads featuring monkeys, kung fu masters and tense reality show music that aim to drum home the fact that there's a winner every second-and-a-half across the whole portfolio.

The blurb:

People win a lot more than you’d expect with the many games from Lotto. In fact, Kiwis are winning thousands of times a day, tens of thousands of times a week, and millions of times a year. However, just telling people facts and figures is hardly inspiring. So we brought this to life with an entertaining spin on the repetition of commonplace events and sounds. By making our impressive frequency of wins relatable to everyday life, people can’t help but feel that they could very well be next.
