QIC is inviting all Australians to embrace their inner child, with the launch of its ‘Merry Everything’ Christmas campaign, created by Jane Doe Creation, that encourages customers to switch their adult perspective to see the season through the eyes of their younger selves.
The campaign kicks off with a ‘Naughty or Nice’ film tackling the age-old question every household wonders: Who’s been naughty and who’s been nice? With a playful twist, the film sees the baton passed to the true masters of fun: Aussie kids.
Directed by Alex Feggans at Austin Studio, the campaign will run online and across social and will be supported by OOH signage and instore activities including Santa photography, spend to win giveaways, free gift wrapping and more.
Says Elissa Maine, executive creative producer, Jane Doe Creation: “Christmas is a time for coming together with family and loved ones and to mix it up a little, this year we let the kids decide who was on the ‘Naughty & Nice’ list.
“Casting real families and following the threads of their responses to build out our storytelling was a deliberate casting decision put forward by Alex. It radiates real warmth and connectivity throughout the campaign and brings a genuine smile to your face.”
Says Bronwyn Cooper, head of marketing, QIC: “We adult all year round, yet there’s a special time of the year when we can let someone else out to play. The holidays are a time to create special memories with the ones we love most, and Merry Everything invites Australians to share the joy and channel their inner child this Christmas.”
As part of the Merry Everything campaign, QIC will be launching the Naughty or Nice Quiz. Shoppers can determine whether they are likely to be on Santa’s naughty or nice list by entering the online quiz – with all participants going in the draw to win a $1,000 gift card.
