DDB launches AA Insurance: Live a Little Freer

Editor TVCs, News Make a Comment

AUCKLAND, Thursday: DDB has launched a new AA Insurance brand campaign, Live a Little Freer, which follows three Kiwis’ quest to live life worry-free. 

DDB – with a little help from Finch – brought the story to life by following the journey of three characters who embody freedom, confident in the knowledge they are protected with AA Insurance: A loveable superhero kid, an older gentleman, and a woman in her car are portrayed as carefree, as life’s dramas play out around them. (Scroll down to see all three tvcs.)

DDB ECD Shane Bradnick says the Live a Little Freer campaign takes a lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek approach to insurance. 

“The campaign is designed to show how freeing it can be knowing AAI has you covered when life gets complicated, whether that be mother nature or a particularly tricky carpark,” he said.

“I love that a child’s fun is at the heart of the idea – the simple stuff of kids being kids and roaming about and exploring the world.”

“Across all of our work for AAI we’ve been trying to create a consistent feeling, which is making insurance products understandable and engaging for Kiwis. We’ve succeeded in doing that and it’s fantastic to see the work to date driving growth for the business.”

AA Insurance head of marketing Richard Park says the campaign embraces the brand’s personality and dedication to customer satisfaction.

“We are incredibly proud to launch our Live a Little Freer campaign; it reinforces our commitment to provide certainty and eliminate stress for our valued customers and allowing them to live life freer every day.”

The integrated campaign will roll out in TV, cinema, digital, social media and radio. View the others below:
