Towning around: Clems and NZTA opt for jangly jingoism in driver fatigue campaign

The NZTA and Clemenger BBDO have been pushing the advertising envelope recently. It released the most popular ad of 2011 at the end of last year, Legend, and followed that up with a controversial ‘you’re on candid camera!’ campaign to draw attention to drugged-driving at the start of 2012. And, as part of its summer push to reduce the road toll, they’ve taken a rather patriotic, jingly, kitschy approach to fighting driver fatigue, with three 15 second ads that showcase some of New Zealand’s classic and/or cringey town signs/tourist attractions to the tune of some down-on-the-farm Kiwi songs.
