Special Australia shoots Uber Eats NZ campaign

EditorTVCs, News Make a Comment

AUCKLAND, Today: Stan Walker meets Jono and Ben in the latest instalment of the tongue-in-cheek Uber Eats ad campaign, Tonight I’ll Be Eating – produced by Special Group Australia.

The new ad sees Jono and Ben try their hands at a variety of new career opportunities, all under the watchful (and not totally impressed) eye of seasoned talent judge, Stan Walker. The trio add their own flavour to discussions of what they’re having for dinner, before it’s conveniently delivered straight to them via Uber Eats.

Impeccably styled by NZ fashionista Sammy Salsa, Walker sports a sassy attitude along with a fuchsia fur coat, pink silk suit and a yellow-and-black polka-dot button-down shirt, while Jono and Ben don fabulously reflective embroidered silver suits to fumble their way through auditions to work for Walker in various roles including backup dancers, maraca players and lighting directors.

“The 60sec and 15sec advertisements will run across digital and on-demand platforms.”

Walker reckons he is an Uber Eats fan and regular customer in his daily life, finding it easy to order in with his packed schedule.

“I live on Uber Eats,” he claimed. “I’m thankful for it because I’m lazy as hell. My go-to Uber Eats order as of late is Nandos. I’ve been ordering it every day; I’ve had Nandos every day for the last six days straight.”

Stan, Jono and Ben follow Rachel Hunter and Dai Henwood’s Tonight I’ll Be Eating creative which was unveiled last month and will run until June.

The 60sec and 15sec advertisements will run across a range of digital and on-demand platforms.
