Samsung has launched the second iteration of its local campaign via Colenso BBDO, following the ‘Now you can’ initiative. The ad focuses on the light capabilities of the Galaxy S7 and Edge camera, using young, lively people enjoying their nighttime experiences in a variety of ways to get the message across.

A trip back in time—and a trip to National Bank country

As the biggest lender to the rural sector, the National Bank knows more about how our agrarian warriors tick than most. And while this ad is an oldie that was made by DraftFCB and Robber's Dog around the same time as the National Bank 'For the Places you'll Go' campaign (we obviously we don't watch enough Country Calendar and hadn't seen it before), we reckon it's a goodie.

Ja, das ist gut: VW brings the weather with it, reaps rewards from more localised approach

Not too long ago, Volkswagen was seen by Kiwis as a brand that was too expensive, too Germanic and too standoffish. So the European car maker set about changing that and, with the help of DDB NZ, it's been making some serious inroads into the Kiwi market, with the 2011 results achieving records for both its passenger and commercial vehicles. Now the pair are hoping to continue the upward trajectory with a new series of ‘the same, but different’ TVCs running in the pre-weather spot on ONE News.

A VW double

If you were ranking car brands on the quality of their ads, VW would certainly be near the the top of the pile. And here are a couple of newbies, one a creative retail spot from DDB NZ and Robber's Dog that follows on from the darkly humorous 'Wedding Day' and the other from DDB Singapore, which employed the services of Yukfoo Animation and director Julian Stokoe for a cool, crayon-heavy, 60 second spot to promote the new Jetta.

Westpac's talkin' bout your generations

Ahhh, babies. So cute, so cuddly, so much potential, yet so financially illiterate. To help remedy that—but mainly to celebrate 150 years in New Zealand—Westpac, with the help of .99 and Robber's Dog, has launched a new campaign called Gen W that's offering 150 small Kiwi humans ongoing financial support and advice until they turn 18.
