The TVC – ‘Hello Possums’ – sees Aleksandr and Sergei looking a bit worse for wear after wandering around the Australian bush, all because a possum catcher failed to compare. As the meerkats emerge from the wild , they are just in time to hitch a ride home in style. When Aleks and Sergei get inside the car, they are met by none other than Dame Edna, who greets them with her famous expression ‘Hello Possums!’
Christopher Catchpoole, chief marketing officer at Compare the Market, says not everyone makes the right decision the first time, even if you are a celebrity.
“Our latest ad concludes the amusing series with the colourful Dame Edna, who comically also appears to confuse the meerkats for possums via her trademark greeting. The storyline serves to subtly remind consumers about the importance of comparison and doing their research before making any significant purchases.”
Paul Sharp, creative director for VCCP Sydney, says: “It’s such a fitting way to end our epic three-part (mis)adventure. We’re also very excited to be sharing the complete three-part story online and as a limited 90-second cinema spot.”
Everyday Aussies will also be saying ‘Hello Possums!’ in no time with the use of Compare the Market’s latest Instagram and Facebook story filter. Whilst wearing the infamous Dame Edna glasses, you can choose from a range of frame colours by tapping the screen and deciding which palette is right for your look.
