Australia Post introduces Nick the Intern this Christmas in new campaign via The Monkeys


Australia Post has taken on a new intern across its business who looks ever so familiar in a new campaign via The Monkeys, part of Accenture Song.


In The Monkeys’ fifth year of Australia Post Christmas commercials, the campaign follows a curious Santa Claus as he goes undercover as an intern at Australia Post to work out how they go about delivering gifts at Christmas time. Paired up with postie Alex, Nick discovers exactly how Australia Post does it, with no magic needed.

Says Catriona Noble, EGM, retail, brand and marketing, Australia Post: “Australia Post is proud to deliver Australians their Christmas presents each year, but whilst Santa has reindeer and sleighs, we’re slightly more 2024 with our App, Parcel Lockers and electric powered fleet, and this campaign juxtaposes those two contrasting worlds in a really charming and fun way.”

Says Ant Keogh, chief creative officer, The Monkeys: “Australia Post and Santa Claus go together like milk and cookies. They both work hard to deliver joy at Christmas time, and both have a penchant for the colour red. This year’s campaign celebrates them both in a way that’s fun and entertaining.”

The new campaign, directed by Tony Rogers from Guilty has launched nationally across television, in-store, online, radio and social.
