Everyone's Searching for Something in Trade Me Spot

Charming spot from FINCH director Wade Shotter and Colenso BBDO celebrates what we're all searching for

Everyone's Searching for Something in Trade Me Spot

Trade Me has launched a new brand campaign via Clemenger Group this week, doubling down on the myriad of reasons why Kiwis trust Trade Me to get them through all of life’s moments. 

The charming suite of new ads for the iconic Kiwi brand are now running across TV, social, and OOH.

Directed by Wade Shotter of FINCH, who recently returned home from the UK, the films show people from all over the country turning to a place they trust to create the life they want. Each scene is substantiated by Trade Me search data.

Stand out moments feature a potato in the shape of a bear, a dad who all parents can relate to, and one of New Zealand’s worst golfers.

Says Trade Me’s head of brand, Sarah O’Leary: “We’re delighted with the new campaign. It conveys the trust Kiwis have in Trade Me, helping them find the stuff they need, while capturing our brand’s unique and charming tone.” 

Says Colenso BBDO chief creative officer, Levi Slavin: “Trade Me is an icon of Kiwi culture. Everyone uses it, but we all use it differently. Celebrating these differences is a core focus of the campaign." 

The campaign marks the third round of work released with Clemenger Group agencies, in collaboration between Clemenger BBDO Wellington and Colenso BBDO.
