Visa, together with Colenso BBDO & Clemenger BBDO Sydney, has today launched Urban Survivalist, a branded entertainment series starring one of Australia's most successful comedic exports, Ronny Chieng (The Daily Show, Crazy Rich Asians).
Urban Survivalist puts one celebrity contestant, in one foreign city, for 24 hours with the intention of seeing how he survives with no warning and no wallet. What the producers don't realise is that he is carrying his mobile phone.
Says Jac Phillips, head of marketing for Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific, Visa: "The purpose of this campaign is to build awareness about the convenience, acceptance and security of Visa mobile payments. By entertaining our audience at the same time as educating them on the benefits of paying with Visa on your mobile phone, we believe we'll get the cut through we need.
"So, we've put humour at the heart of our approach. Data tells us humour is a key driver in generating brand fame and driving effectiveness, and at Visa we are good at having fun!
"To help bring the comedy and the fame, we knew we had to work with a well known comedian and who better than rising global star, Ronny Chieng.
"Ronny worked closely on the scripts with our creative team, which included Ronny Chieng: International Student collaborator, Declan Fay. We are thrilled with the results."
Urban Survivalist will be seen in cinema, TV and premieres exclusively on the internet. The campaign will also be supported by an activation at Manly Wharf in partnership with Pedestrian TV.
