Supercheap Auto says ‘We Still Love You Bathurst 1000’ in campaign via The Monkeys


Supercheap Auto has launched its new campaign via newly appointed agency The Monkeys Melbourne, part of Accenture Interactive.


They say if you love them, let them go. If you really love them, hold a bunch of press conferences confessing your love and vow to never let them go.

The latter is the way Supercheap Auto decided to go after it was announced earlier this year that despite 16 years of partnership, next year the Bathurst 1000 has chosen to end things and see other sponsors. A foreign owned sponsor nevertheless.

Directed by Al Morrow from Rabbit, the campaign follows Nathan Murray, PR representative from Supercheap Auto, in the lead up to the race.

As he navigates his way through each stage of loss, will this end like Romeo and Juliet or will it be more of a Ross and Rachel situation? Only time will tell.

Says Benjamin Ward, managing director, Supercheap Auto: “Supercheap Auto isn’t going down without a fight and the humble press conference seemed the most 2020 way to do that.”

Says Ant Keogh, chief creative officer, The Monkeys Melbourne: “They say love has no boundaries. We now know that extends to one man’s love for motor racing.”

You can follow Nathan’s journey this week on the Supercheap Auto Facebook page or at whilst also checking out this week’s great specials on engine oil.
