AUCKLAND, Tuesday: Fire & Emergency New Zealand, with creative indy Motion Sickness and media agency MBM, have released a new campaign to raise awareness of fires caused by our everyday rechargeable items that are powered by lithium-ion batteries – a globally rising trend.
Shot in studio with pyrotechnics to simulate a lithium-ion fire, as real lithium-ion battery fires are too volatile and unpredictable.
“So Motion Sickness hijacked the simple and sterile nature of Warning Labels, a language universally understood.
“The campaign adopts the cold visuals of cigarette pack health warnings as well as their direct and jarring language. Shot in studio with pyrotechnics to simulate a lithium-ion fire, as real lithium-ion battery fires are too volatile and unpredictable.
“With this being a relatively unfamiliar danger, there needed to be a way to immediately establish danger.”
“With simple messaging focusing on behaviours around charging our everyday items, Warning Labels looks to establish lithium-ion battery fire danger in a hard-to-miss and easy-to-get way.”
Motion Sickness worked with Fire & Emergency and media partners MBM to promote the campaign across OOH, social video and radio channels, with contextual OOH around certain items.
E-bike and E-scooter warning messages will feature on digital e-charging station screens, and vape warning messages will feature in a special-build vape display.
Radio for the campaign takes an alternative approach – adopting comically overt advertising and an ASMR style to set up the danger in everyday items.
Warning Labels is live throughout October and November.
