Synopsis:
`Financial Controller’ Kicks off New Bord Gáis Energy Rewards Club Campaign
Joining Bord Gáis Energy’s Rewards Club could help your father-in-law get to the big hurling games
To promote its award-winning Rewards Club, Bord Gáis Energy has this week launched a new TV and print campaign, highlighting the benefits that over 260,000 members can receive, including the opportunity to get exclusive access to All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship tickets.
The humorous 40-second TV ad features a father and his family watching a GAA match on the couch with his future son-in-law, who has failed to get him a ticket for the big hurling match. Sensing his not-too-subtle disappointment, the son-in-law is reminded that, if he’d been a member of the Bord Gáis Energy Rewards Club he would have been able to secure the tickets to the big match and his future father-in-law’s eternal gratitude.
This new advertisement builds on the success of the Bord Gáis Energy’s ‘it’s worth thinking about’ campaign which was launched earlier this year. Running until the middle of July, the new ad communicates the unbeatable rewards on offer to Bord Gáis Energy Rewards Club members including GAA hurling and Bord Gáis Energy Theatre tickets, great value rewards on Tesco Clubcard points and special offers on boiler servicing and Hive smart home technology.
Dermot Mulligan, Acting Marketing Controller, Bord Gáis Energy said, “This new campaign is another step on from our previous campaigns, this time taking a tongue-in-cheek approach to the sometimes delicate relationship between a father and his future son-in-law. Underneath it though is the strong message that Bord Gáis Energy’s Rewards Club offers a number of unbeatable benefits, and un-missable money can’t buy experiences, to our customers. As the helpful energy company, we don’t want to just become the supplier of choice of gas and electricity; we offer a range of smart home technologies and home energy services designed to help make life that little but easier for our customers. Everything we’re doing in our communications underlines that commitment and this campaign brings that strategy on again.”
The TV campaign will run from the 12th of June until the 16th of July, and will be supported by a digital campaign across a number of high reach websites, including some news site takeovers and high impact formats.
The campaign was developed by Publicis and was led by key account handlers, Sheena Denneny and Eibhín McLoughlin. “This ad is all about Bord Gáis Energy Rewards and the dramatic setting observes the relationship between hurling, fathers-in-law and their soon to be sons-in-law. It also explores the complex relationship between Dublin and Cork people. A heady mix if ever there was one,” said Jimmy Murphy, Director of Publicis. “Bord Gáis Energy was happy take on this delicate subject matter for comic effect, which is great news for any creative agency.”
