Tagline Your best mate will follow you anywhere. Lead them well.
Story Your best mate will follow you anywhere, but if you’re a smoker, where are you really leading them? Smokers are well versed on the harmful effects that cigarettes have on their health and the health of the people around them, yet many accept quitting to be an impossible task and concede to taking the risk. To help give smokers new reason to ditch the pack, we chose a different angle based on — little known fact Kiwi smokers to start their quit journey – their pets. Emotionally charged and beautifully shot, the spot comes to a conclusion around the all-too-relatable experience many people have had when their time with a beloved animal comes to an end. And the realisation, for smokers, that there’s something tangible they can do to stave that day off for longer with the help of Quitline. New Zealand has one of the highest rates of pet ownership in the world, with these furry companions taking up a special place in our hearts. It's this powerful connection and the unbreakable loyalty between a man and his dog that the campaign centres around – educating smokers on the little known fact that when they smoke around their pets, they’re twice as likely to get cancer. Directed by Perry Bradley of Film Construction, with music composed by Peter van der Fluit of Liquid Studios, viewers get a unique dog’s view of the world. However, as the story progresses, we realise that smoking is leading them both somewhere they don't want to go.
