Aussies from 0-100 years old celebrated in ‘As Worn By Us’ Bonds brand campaign via Special


To remind the nation of the uniquely beloved place the brand holds across all ages and demographics, Bonds has launched a new brand platform: ‘As worn by us’. Created by Special Group and produced by Wildebeest, over 20 days were spent on the road, travelling from Mullumbimby to Perth, Melbourne to the Tiwi Islands, capturing footage of everyday Australians wearing Bonds.


The campaign includes a suite of films voiced by Noni Hazelhurst. Each spot starts where the last one left off to present a seemingly never ending chain of Aussies in Bonds; demonstrating that no matter who you might be, chances are you’re wearing the brand.

For OOH over 100 photographic portraits were shot of Australians wearing Bonds at every year of life from ages 0 to 100. A large-scale installation at Melbourne’s Parliament Station saw all the portraits presented together, showcasing a rich array of characters from farmers to wrestlers to dancers to accountants, beginning with newborn, Adeline, in her Bonds Newbies and concluding with 100-year-old Geoffrey, in his Chesty.

“‘As worn by us’ is a proud reflection of the simple and unique truth that Bonds can be found in almost every Aussie’s undie or sock drawer,” says Kedda Ghazarian, Head of Marketing at Bonds. “The campaign is a celebration of these stories, connections and the unique bond we all share – from the littlest newborn bub to the 100-year-old still rocking our humble Chesty singlet.”

Adds Ryan Fitzgerald, Executive Creative Director at Special: “When it comes to wearing Bonds, there’s often only one-degree-of-separation between us all. Bringing these connections to life took us all over the country. So many beautiful folks invited us into their lives and in many cases, stripped down to their undies. Seeing the authentic love out there for Bonds was something to behold and spectacular proof that it really is the brand as worn by us.”

The campaign will run for the remainder of the year, across TV, cinema, social, point of sale, national OOH including the Parliament Station takeover and a Melbourne tram wrap.
