Commercial: Lotto Lottery Wishlist

A man finds the wishlist he had made as a kid while searching for something in the garage. It takes him down the memory lane and he recalls the events like sleeping on the top bunk, having his art work misunderstood, performing in a school play etc which led him to make the list. In present he is seen to strike off two items from his wishlist, leaving “be the hero” and “be an astronaut” for the future.

Advertising: Everyone’s always stealing your stuff

NZI (New Zealand Insurance) promoted their insurance packages covering theft during the NZI Rugby Sevens held in Wellington in February 2009. The NZI tagline, “Everyone’s always stealing your stuff”, was brought to life using adshels featuring a pirate, a clown and a chicken, each in various stages of being undressed. Passersby were able to interact with the adshels by physically removing clothing. See the example below.
