Australian Gas Networks encourages Aussies to 'love winter' in new campaign via CHE Proximity

Screen Shot 2018-04-27 at 7.56.17 am.jpgAustralian Gas Networks (AGN), with the help of CHE Proximity, has launched a new campaign that encourages Australians to 'love winter' this year.
Directed by FINCH's Jae Morrison, the campaign is led by three TVCs - Cooking with Gas, Nup and House Pants. The series brings to life authentic and relatable scenarios around enjoying the great indoors this winter, with a focus on natural gas when its benefits are the strongest.
Acting marketing manager of Australian Gas Networks, Chris Hewson, says the energy infrastructure category is traditionally dominated by rational and functional messaging, which AGN wanted to change.

Says Hewson: "We really wanted to flip this functional convention on its head and drive desire for Natural Gas through emotion when it's most applicable, in winter".
Group creative director at CHE Proximity, Glen Dickson, says the agency's approach to the campaign was to show Aussies that there's a bright side to the colder months.
Says Dickson: "Typically, Aussies yearn for beach and BBQ weather, but with this campaign Aussies might rethink their favourite season."
AGN's 'Love Winter' campaign launches this month across a variety of platforms nationally, including TV, out of home, online media, cinema and radio.

You CHEP people really know how to blow your own trumpet.
These are very, very average.

These are just boring and bland. And what’s with Tone Loc blabbering on in the background, I had to check my speakers to see if I had music on at the same time. You couldn’t do a simple track edit?

We’d like our line back thanks.

Nice said:

Really sweet. Love the writing.

These are far and away my favourite ads this winter. The kind that make me leave the radio ON. They work so well for both radio and TV. Just love these. Especially NUP.
