Who can resist babies dressed up in power suits?

For Kiwi telco company 2degrees, TBWA uses an adorable set of influencers to promote baby bonuses.

To celebrate its merger with Vocus NZ, Kiwi telco company 2degrees decided to launch baby bonuses as a way to “celebrate the next generation”. As part of the bonus, the telco will be granting all babies born on June 1st a share in 222k NZD (US$144k) in bonuses.

To promote this initiative, agency partner TBWA NZ gathered several adorable babies, dressed them in business suits, let them play with mobile phones and their food, and caught all the shenanigans on film. Ad Nut thinks there might be no easier or more effective way to make anyone smile for at least 10 seconds. Job done, 2degrees.
