AUSTRALIA – Nimble, an online lending company in Australia, has launched a brand campaign to show Aussies how to ‘Nimble it’ with smart little loans when unexpected things happen.

The campaign, entitled ‘Unexpected happens’, positions Nimble as a smart solution for short-term cash needs.

A series of television and radio ads, created by Clemenger BBDO Brisbane, showcases familiar unexpected situations—including a pregnancy (above), a car breakdown and a visit to the vet—each with a further unexpected twist.

“We challenged the team to create a truly memorable campaign with brilliant characters and humour while offering a simple explanation for what the Nimble product offering is all about,” said Stirling Howland, brand strategist at Nimble.
