Ad Nut
Mar 16, 2020

When your CGI dragon is more believable than your premise

Our pal Ad Nut has a hard time buying the level of customer service depicted in this action-packed TVC for Australia's St. George's bank, by Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney.

Ad Nut has an easier time believing in benevolent miniature dragons than in employees who race across town, leap fences and commandeer children's bicycles to deliver customers' forgotten phones. But perhaps Ad Nut is patronising the wrong bank?

However, couldn't the dragon have delivered the phone more quickly than the nice lady, and with a lot less risky behaviour? 

The campaign includes the 45-second TV spot, plus specific social and pre-roll content, digital, out of home and in-branch materials.
