Australia’s leading manufacturer of emergency locator beacons and radio communication equipment, GME, has appointed creative-led PR agency We Are Different and its strategy and creative partner Not Bad ϟ Pretty Good to lead its communications in Australia and New Zealand.
Tasked with driving awareness and sales among new outdoor and adventure category entrants, the team’s pitch-winning campaign – Where The Bloody Hell Am I? – launches this week, parodying iconic tourism messaging to remind travellers of the potential pitfalls that can come with exploring the great outdoors.
Already gaining national media exposure, the earned-first PR, digital and OOH campaign features breathtaking locations of GME’s biggest Australian rescues, transforming their locations into a travel itinerary of the best places to visit safely with GME. A full list of destinations can be explored via an interactive Rescue Route map at therescueroute.com.
GME’s Group Marketing Manager, Tony Crooke, said: “It’s great to see so many Aussies taking up camping, 4WDing or hiking for the first time this year, but many don’t realise that just a few clicks out of the city you’ll need a radio or emergency beacon to stay in touch. The campaign highlights the beauty and excitement of the great outdoors while encouraging Aussies to avoid a ‘Where The Bloody Hell Am I?’ moment with GME.”
NBϟPG partner Joel Pearson said: “It’s always exciting when you get to work with a brand and products that serve a genuine need. And when we saw the volume of rescues that start with a GME product, the stunning locations many of them occur in, and the life or death difference having one product can make, turning these rescue locations into travel destinations felt like a lovely way to introduce GME to a whole new audience this summer.”
We Are Different founder and director Stuart Terry said: “We’re incredibly proud of this campaign and our partnership with GME. The campaign shows how an earned-first idea can easily stretch into paid media channels – with the right thinking, team and approach. This is market-leading creative and a true testament to what can be achieved when clients commit to doing things differently.”
