BWS latest integrated campaign by M&C Saatchi Sydney cleverly suggests that if you aren’t ordering alcohol to your door, you are living in the dark ages.
The campaign highlights BWS’s one-hour delivery capability and 30-minute pick-up. The retailer is guaranteeing that if it doesn’t deliver your drinks within the hour, the next delivery is free.
This week saw the launch of the 60-second TVC in line with the creative idea centred around the insight that if you’re not utilising BWS’s convenience, you might as well be living in the dark ages.
Alongside M&C Saatchi Sydney, the retailer shows scenarios in the Middle Ages (BC – Before Convenience) contrasted with a modern BWS character.
Tasked with the media activation, Carat crafted an approach based on Dentsu global research titled the Attention Economy.
This saw media come to life through a Channel 9 broadcast sponsorship of the NRL, including the State of Origin and Finals series.
Underpinning this was BVOD buys which aired within the season release of The Handmaids Tale and current reality show Big Brother, along with buys across YouTube and Facebook.
The campaign features across social and digital, with 15-second and six-second videos across Facebook, YouTube, BVOD and other premium video platforms, as well as broader support across OOH, radio and owned channels.
The campaign will run until later in the year, with TV running until October in line with the NRL season.
BWS head of marketing Anna Webster said, “We try hard to make BWS the most convenient place to buy drinks, which is why we are introducing a guarantee so customers can count on us for getting speedy delivery.
“If you’re not ordering your drinks through BWS, you may as well be living in the dark ages.”
Sharon Edmondston, creative director at M&C Saatchi Sydney, said, “BC (before convenience) is a super-simple creative platform that can transport us anywhere in history to dramatise how inconvenient life was before BWS conveniences.
“To kick it off in medieval times with Tony Rogers and the Guilty team was an absolute joy – and it shows on screen.”
