BCF – Boating Camping Fishing are launching their new BCFing brand platform this weekend, via a collaboration between Clemenger BBDO Brisbane and Melbourne.
‘A BCFing musical’ will go to air during the Grand Finals with a hard-to-get-out-of-your-head song that captures the fun of Boating, Camping and Fishing. BCF set out to broaden the appeal of Boating Camping and Fishing as a way for anyone to escape the 9 to 5.
Clemenger BBDO Melbourne chief creative officer, Ant Keogh said: “We took the challenge of being shamelessly retail and created a musical that happens to repeat the brand name over 10 times in 30 seconds.”
Nick Kelly, director at The Sweet Shop said: “What grabbed me when I first heard the BCF song was the simple honesty of it. There was no trickery, just this infectious sense of joy. Creating the ragtag bunch of characters to tell the story was a lot of fun.”
The ads finish on the call-to-action, ‘Be a BCFing expert’ with the BCF team and online content ready to help people become masters of the outdoors.
The new brand will be rolling out in-store, online and through the upcoming Summer and Christmas retail seasons.
