Clemenger BBDO unveils 'lock in' campaign for NAB

MELBOURNE - BBDO Clemenger has launched a new set of film and TVCs for the National Australia Bank, this time focusing on its mortgage products that prevent customers from being 'locked in'

wide player in 16:9 format. Used on article page for Campaign.

The integrated TV and online campaign was launched on October 7. It shows unsuspecting people being placed in unusual situations, heightened as the protagonist then locks doors and windows, preventing any escape.

In the 'Open house' film, for example, prospective buyers of a flat are locked inside with an alarm blaring.

Sally Bruce, general manager of mortgages at NAB, says the films highlight the freedom that its customers have to switch their loans to other banks. "Recent research tells us 82% of mortgagees say banks have no right to make it difficult for customers to change to another mortgage provider. No-one wants to feel locked into their home loan and with NAB they don't have to," she said.

Ant Keogh, ECD of Clemenger BBDO Melbourne said, “We soon realised that the idea of freedom becomes much more tangible the moment you take it away.”

The new reality-style campaign follows on from a similar film promoting NAB's "honest" credit card products.
