Lockwood says 'give 'em the finger' in new spots promoting its Keyless Entry products via Bengar

Screen Shot 2014-10-24 at 11.30.49 am.jpgIconic Australian brand Lockwood aims to change perceptions of the humble front door lock in an entertaining campaign by Bengar in Melbourne which introduces Lockwoodʼs new Keyless Entry technology.

Says Nick Penny, business manager marketing: "People seem to think that the home front door lock is just a piece of hardware that opens and closes a door -- we aim to change that. We want to show audiences how Lockwood Keyless Entry products can integrate into their lives with convenience."

Screen Shot 2014-10-27 at 7.45.53 am.jpgSays Ben Gartland, director, Bengar: "Everyone has a story to tell of being locked out of their house or losing their keys, so we decided to explore territory where Lockwood Keyless entry saves the day with a simple action - using the finger. With Screen Shot 2014-10-27 at 7.46.01 am.jpgʻGive em the finger, we say no to lockouts, no to carrying keys, and no to unwanted guests."
In three humorous scenarios, Bengar explore the embarrassment of being locked out on rubbish-day, changing the pin code on prickly in-laws and how to get out of a weird key party situation.

Says Gartland: "To enhance the storytelling nature of these precarious situations, we were lucky enough to track down Will Ferrellʼs Anchorman inspiration Mort Crim, to voice our Lockwood stories. He loved the idea which was really exciting."

Great spots. Looks like a cohesive team who didnt take its eye off the comedy. Great direction and I'm betting on a tight budget. Good stuff. Makes the Exit's/Goodoils/revolvers/Sweetshops look like robbers. And I REALLY have nothing to do with this campaign or anyone involved.
