ING Bank and JWT Amsterdam's New Campaign Puts Value of Friendship to Test

Creative 557 Add to collection

New campaign produced by Holy Fools puts friendship to the test in order to see if love beats money

ING Bank and JWT Amsterdam's New Campaign Puts Value of Friendship to Test
J. Walter Thompson Amsterdam and ING Bank present ‘Love Beats Money’ - a social experiment designed to discover whether people value their friendship or family relationship more than money.

The filmed experiment focuses on a series of duos. People with close ties, who used to have a warm relationship - but who are no longer in touch because of a dispute over money.  Everyone is interviewed separately on camera to discuss the money conflict from their perspective – and how it makes them feel. Afterwards, each person gets to watch the other’s interview showing their side to the story, and they are given the choice: is your friendship or family ties more important than money?  Choose the heart sign if so; or if money is more important, then go for the € sign.

Johan van der Zanden, Head of Communication & Brand Experience ING Netherlands and Belgium:

"Money is more than just a means of payment, it can help you achieve your goals - but it can also put a relationship out of balance. With Love Beats Money we have brought people back in touch with each other and tried to give them some new insights. The couples are now reunited and fortunately they are all happy about this. Of course love is more important than money. We’re aiming to inspire and touch people with this film."

Bas Korsten, Creative Partner J. Walter Thompson Amsterdam:

“We wanted to explore the fact that a conflict about money – even a small amount - can stall a relationship. Love Beats Money seems like a surprising statement coming from a bank, but in fact it fits seamlessly into the brand’s ethos, as ING Bank stands for progress. We are thrilled that our experiment shows that love indeed conquers all. No matter how important we sometimes think money is.
