The spot closes with HardRock 3.jpgthe tagline: "Now better off together".
 
Says Michael Smith, marketing director, Optus: "Our objective with this campaign was to highlight the ways in which Optus is bringing people closer together. We wanted to showcase the benefits of our new mobile plans that give customers HardRock 4.jpgunlimited SMS and voice calls to other Optus customers.

"As with our recent brand campaign, the message is a very simple one - what matters most to you, matters to us. From the ability to connect with the people you love to getting the hottest phone before anyone else, Optus makes it possible."

Says Ben Welsh, M&C Saatchi executive creative director: "The simple truth is that when people come together with family and friends they are always better off.

"We took this insight and created a strong emotional connection with the consumer and the product."

In addition to the TVC, the campaign will roll out with major Press, POS, Online, Mobile and Radio executions.

Like hello, what's going on with the M&C Planning Department?

'It's Possible' for Optus.

'Can' for CBA.

What's the next big client going to get?

'Achievable'?

'Doable'?

Obviously Thesaurus doesn't know M&C have a brutally simple creative mantra of 'One' word. 'Can', 'Possible' and Dick 'Does' are simply examples of M&C's creative philosophy at work. And whether you like it, or don't, at least they have one they believe in and deliver on.

'The Yellow Cube Enabling Device', hard to say with a straight face, so I guess you have to admire them for pulling it off without a spit take.

Reminds me of the red box Vodafone were throwing around for a bit. And the blue box at the end of the Bupa ads. Boxes. Beautiful little boxes. Yay Optus!
