Bupa "This is health" by MullenLowe

Tapping into a range of human experiences, healthcare company Bupa's new brand campaign redefines the meaning of wellness for the modern age.


Bupa tackles key stereotypes around ageing in this 30-second spot showcasing its care home offering for later life.

The film opens with a person blowing out candles on their birthday cake. The numbers on the candles gradually go up and the lights come on to reveal the person is surrounded by people at a party.

Copy on the screen reads: "It’s just a number. You’re still you. Up for new things. Or happy how you are."

It was directed by David Baksh through Annex and created by Jane Briers and Dave Cornmell.
