Bupa exists to help prepare Australians for life’s ups, downs and up-agains – a simple truth Thinkerbell has brought to life in its latest iteration of the ‘Because Life Happens’ platform.
The campaign highlights the rollercoaster that life can produce in a very literal and visceral way, with Australians floating up and down in the sky in a variety of scenarios.
The campaign is set to launch over the weekend and will ramp up throughout September thanks to the easily adaptable framework from Thinkerbell.
Thinkerbell’s national chief creative, Jim Ingram, said: “We’ve been itching to dial Bupa’s distinctiveness up a few levels. With the single mindedness of the idea, the clarity of the execution, and the beauty of our new track, Bupa can only go up, up, up, and up in the minds of Aussies looking for health insurance. That’s all of you.”
Bupa’s general manager of marketing, Naomi Morton, said: “We are thrilled to take the next big creative leap forward with our ‘Because life happens’ platform. Brands need to be honest, relevant and to speak to the moment. Against the backdrop of uncertainty of the past few years, this campaign is a positive demonstration of Bupa’s experience and scale, giving our members confidence that we’re here for them through life’s ups and downs.”
