Dundee: A Tourism Campaign In Disguise

We staged the reboot of 1986's Crocodile Dundee in order to show off the unique nature of Australia, and revealed during the Super Bowl it was simply a tourism campaign in disguise. One that became the most successful in Tourism Australia's history.

Beyond the Label

In Singapore, people with mental health conditions live in the shadow of a cultural Goliath – popular misperceptions, negative stereotypes and other widespread biases that make life miserable. NCSS wanted to encourage Singaporeans to be more supportive and inclusive – which would mean confronting this Goliath. Our campaign harnessed proven reframing techniques to deliver significant (20%, 50%, even 80%+) positive shifts in Singaporeans' knowledge, attitudes and behavior – far surpassing all its goals. So while our “slingshot” may not have slain the giant, it ‘s cut him down to size.

Income: The Best Gift (from the worst parents in the world)

Branded content is hard to define. But it’s intent is clear - reach people at scale who are in an engaged state of mind and therefore more receptive to brand messages. This is exactly what Income did. With a topic that hit the nerve of society - should your child be your retirement plan? - Income shocked, surprised and made Singaporeans cry with a 5min branded content film. And with a strategy to earn coverage, fuel sharing, and drive people through the funnel, Income grew life insurance sales by 13% with declining SOV.
