'Endangered' retirees populate live diorama at Australian Museum

SYDNEY - Visitors at Sydney's Australian Museum today are getting a surprise—and a branding message—from a live diorama that presents retirees as a modern-day endangered species.

'Endangered' retirees populate live diorama at Australian Museum

The inventive work by Clemenger BBDO Melbourne for MLC, the wealth-management division of NAB, features four actors enjoying typical retirement activities such as fishing. A live feed is available on the campaign website.

The stunt runs through March 22, leading up to a major advertising campaign that kicks of March 23 and includes TV, print, outdoor and online channels.

Another live exhibit will appear in Melbourne’s Southern Cross Station on March 24.

The "Let's save retirement' campaign is the first to address the "crucial national issue" of a $1 trillion retirement savings gap, according to Sandra De Castro, NAB chief marketing officer.

“One in five Australians has already postponed their retirement, and people are working far beyond the age they had envisaged,” she said. “We’re here to save retirement, and this campaign is all about empowering every Australian to retire comfortably.”

The campaign also represents the first time that the MLC and NAB brands have been linked and features a new MLC visual identity created by brand consultancy PUSH Collective.
